FIRST COW
2020, A24, 121 min, USA, Dir: Kelly Reichardt

A taciturn loner and skilled cook (John Magaro) has traveled West and joined a group of fur trappers in 19th-century Oregon. He finds a kindred spirit in a Chinese immigrant (Orion Lee) and soon the two collaborate on a successful business - although its longevity is reliant upon the clandestine participation of a wealthy landowner’s prized milking cow. From this simple premise Reichardt constructs an interrogation of foundational Americana that recalls her earlier triumph OLD JOY in its sensitive depiction of male friendship yet is driven by a mounting suspense all its own.
