"A mountainous landscape and a dying father are the central focus of directing duo Scott McGehee and David Siegel's (THE DEEP END, SUTURE) latest film, MONTANA STORY. Owen Teague and breakout star Haley Lu Richardson (SUPPORT THE GIRLS) play two estranged millennial siblings named Cal and Erin who've returned home to determine the fate of their comatose father's ranch, including what to do with an arthritic horse named Mr. T. "MONTANA STORY evokes a grandiose style of American frontier filmmaking, somewhere between John Ford and Kelly Reichardt. See it on the largest screen you can find"—Chandler Levack, Globe and Mail. "Like its title, the opening shot of MONTANA STORY tells us exactly where we are, as the morning sun peeks over the craggy mountaintops of Big Sky Country. But the sweeping landscapes here — captured by cinematographer Giles Nuttgens with a casual embrace of their beauty that never falls into the postcard trap of majestic awe — serve a different purpose. The idea that all the panoramic splendor equates to a sense of peace and belonging is called into question in this minor-key modern Western whose melancholy probe into the bruising past gives way, in a quietly satisfying conclusion, to the hope of reconciliation, even healing"—David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter.
