Diagnosed with a rare form of Parkinson’s Disease,
ailing theatrical legend Sir Michael Gifford (Brian
Cox) is terminally ill. He’s also foul‐mouthed, irasci‐
ble, and highly resistant to the concept of allowing
a full !me caregiver into his home. Out of sheer ne‐
cessity, but hardly convicted at the no!on herself,
Sir Michael’s daughter Sophia (Emilia Fox) reluc‐
tantly brings in a candidate to interview for the job.
Into this fraught household comes Doro"ya, an
aspiring Hungarian actress herself in need of a day
job. She secretly hopes that this opportunity to care
for Sir Michael will propel her own career onstage
and endures his unbearable temperament. The real
drama begins to unfold when Sir Michael learns of
his scheming daughter’s plans to remove Doro"ya
from his life, from whom he has regained a sense of
meaning and vigor.

Kelly Reichardt

Writers:
Kelly Reichardt, Maile Meloy
Cast:
Laura Dern, Kristen Stewart, Michelle
Williams, Lily Gladstone, James Le Gros
The lives of three women intersect in small‐town
America, where each is imperfectly blazing a trail.
One of America’s foremost filmmakers, Kelly
Reichardt directs a remarkable ensemble cast led
by Michelle Williams, Kristen Stewart, and Laura
Dern in this s!rring look at three women striving to
forge their own paths amidst the wide‐open plains
of the American Northwest: a lawyer (Dern) who
finds herself contending with both office sexism
and a hostage situa!on; a wife and mother
(Williams) whose determina!on to build her dream
home puts her at odds with the men in her life;
and a young law student (Stewart) who forms an
ambiguous bond with a lonely ranch hand (radiant
newcomer Lily Gladstone).
As their stories intersect in subtle but powerful
ways, a portrait emerges of flawed, but strong‐
willed individuals in the process of defining
themselves.
