‘Meek‘s Cutoff’ by Kelly Reichardt – it’s beautifully shot. It’s a complex story. The filmmaker gave a very patient and feminine touch to a story that takes place during a period of history that’s very masculine, without losing any of the unforgiving harshness of the reality where the characters found themselves in.
It’s very important for feminism for us to tell our daughters that they should be strong.
