In her latest film, Kelly Reichardt once again trains her perceptive and patient eye on the Pacific Northwest, evoking an authentically hardscrabble way of life in the early 19th century. A taciturn loner and skilled cook (Magaro) has traveled west and joined a group of fur trappers in Oregon Territory, finding connection with a Chinese immigrant (Lee) also seeking his fortune. The two soon collaborate on a successful business, but its longevity is reliant upon the clandestine participation of a nearby wealthy landowner’s prized milking cow.

At once an interrogation of foundational Americana and a sensitive depiction of male friendship, and driven by a mounting suspense all its own, First Cow remarkably captures the peculiar rhythms of daily living and the immense, unsettling quietude of rural America.
