Montana Story

Edition 2022
114' - 2021 - Drama - Dialogue: English
Director: Scott McGehee, David Siegel Composer: Kevin Morby With: Haley Lu Richardson, Owen Teague, Gilbert Owuor
Fans of mighty natural landscapes should definitely not miss Montana Story. Nor should fans of tightly composed family dramas, as the film revolves around the feud between a brother and sister.
From the acclaimed writer/directors Scott McGehee and David Siegel (What Maisie Knew, The Deep End) comes a neo-Western with an emotional tremor hiding beneath it. Two estranged siblings (Haley Lu Richardson, Owen Teague) return home to the sprawling ranch they once knew and loved, confronting a deep and bitter family legacy against a mythic American backdrop.
Montana Story, with a few changes in detail, could take place anywhere. The film’s subject is universal: the awesome power that parents exert over their children and the damage they can do. The father still inspires anxiety while comatose. The evil some people do lives after them.” - San Francisco Chronicle
