Michelle Williams gets dirty on the dusty trail in the trailer for Meek's Cutoff

Feb. 26, 2011by: Dave Davis

It's safe to say that the Western genre is going strong at the moment, and while they're not all revenge stories or lawmen tracking outlaws, you can always count on some memorable characters.

MEEK'S CUTOFF stars Oscar nominee Michelle Williams, but it's Bruce Greenwood as the crusty frontiersman who will likely be remembered, assuming people can find him behind that beard. The story of slowly paced struggles on the open plains also features Paul Dano and Will Patton.

Synopsis: The year is 1845, the earliest days of the Oregon Trail, and a wagon team of three families has hired the mountain man Stephen Meek to guide them over the Cascade Mountains. Claiming to know a short cut, Meek leads the group on an unmarked path across the high plain desert, only to become lost in the dry rock and sage. Over the coming days, the emigrants must face the scourges of hunger, thirst and their own lack of faith in each other's instincts for survival. When a Native American wanderer crosses their path, the emigrants are torn between their trust in a guide who has proven himself unreliable and a man who has always been seen as the natural enemy.

This looks great im really excited for this. Mainly because i love westerns like this and thanks to John Hillcoats "The Proposition" (see it if you havent yet its great) this genre is slowly getting life breathed back into it. Also michelle williams is a very talented actress and she definitley has a oscar coming her way here soon sometime. Poster is really cool as well.

This is going to be great. Michelle Williams continues to show that she is possibly the best actress working today. Wendy and Lucy is one of my favorite movies ever, so I have complete faith in Reichhardt. Plus the awesome Zoe Kazan is in this. This is #1 most anticipated movie of the year for me.

I've been waiting for this forever and it looks amazing. Old Joy is one of my favorite movies and Wendy and Lucy is really great too. Can't wait for this.

This COMPLETELY jumped to the top of my most anticipated movies of the year. How I didn't know this even existed is beyond me.

But I know now. So it's ok.

And I thought that Kelly Reichardt name sounded familiar. After "Wendy and Lucy", she's got me hooked. Whew. I love being excited about movies.

You have died of dysentery

Williams and Patton were in Reichardt's "Wendy & Lucy" too. I'm pleased they got another film going. And it's an Oregon Trail Western! I look forward to it.

I'd never heard of this. But I enjoy a nice, well put-together western yarn about disparate people heading into the Great Unknown. And Michelle Williams just seems natural in that setting. Will Patton and Bruce Greenwood are among the greatest character actors working today.
