Hot off the success of the Oscar®-nominated Hell or High Water, writer Taylor Sheridan impresses from the director's chair with his next American frontier film, Wind River. When U.S. Fish & Wildlife agent Cory Lambert (Jeremy Renner, The Hurt Locker, American Hustle) discovers a body in the wilderness of the Wind River Indian Reservation, the FBI sends out rookie agent Jane Banner (Elizabeth Olsen, Martha Marcy May Marlene), who has no idea how to handle the oppressive Wyoming winter. Banner quickly employs Lambert as a guide and tracker, and the two take off into a community devastated by drugs, violence, and the elements. After showing us his skills as a writer with Hell or High Water and Sicario, Sheridan's stint in the director's chair showcases his ability to create rich, unforgettable characters with nuanced dialogue and storytelling. Rounding out the cast with excellent supporting performances from Graham Greene (Dances with Wolves), Gil Birmingham ("House of Cards") and Jon Bernthal ("The Walking Dead"), Sheridan creates a troubled world in this thrilling tale of survival against inescapable isolation and extreme nature, with Renner anchoring the film in a career-high performance as the sincere, soft-spoken tracker who can't escape the tragedies of his past.
