Based on the short stories from Maile Meloy’s collection, Both Ways Is the Only Way I Want It, Certain Women stars Laura Dern, Kristen Stewart, Michelle Williams, and Jared Harris.
Certain Women explores a handful of intersecting lives across Montana. A lawyer tries to defuse a hostage situation and calm her disgruntled client, who feels slighted by a workers’ compensation settlement. A married couple breaks ground on a new home, but exposes marital fissures when they try to persuade an elderly man to sell his stockpile of sandstone. A ranch hand forms an attachment to a young lawyer, who inadvertently finds herself teaching a twice-weekly adult education class, four hours from her home.
The film had its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival on January 24th and is scheduled for release on October 14th.
