BOZEMAN FILM SOCIETY

Actress Lily Gladstone joins Bozeman Film Society on Tuesday, Dec. 6 at 7 p.m. in Bozeman’s historic Ellen Theatre for a screening of the award-winning, Montana-based film, “Certain Women.”

Shot in Livingston and Bozeman, this affecting, bittersweet film was well received at both Sundance and Toronto International Film Festival, going on to win the award for best film at the London Film Festival. Directed by one of America’s foremost directors, Kelly Reichardt (“Wendy and Lucy,” “Meeks Cutoff”), the film features a remarkable ensemble cast led by Michelle Williams, Kristen Stewart and Laura Dern, along with newcomer, Montanan Lily Gladstone. 

The quietly explosive chamber piece, based on a trio of short stories by Helena-born writer Maile Meloy, follows three women in a small, Montana town striving to forge their own paths amid the wide open plains of the American west.

Gladstone’s portrayal of Jaime, opposite Stewart, has received sweeping praise for its heartfelt, vulnerable portrayal of a ranch hand facing an existential crisis, garnering her a nomination for Independent Film Project’s Breakthrough Actor award, and a nod in Rolling Stone magazine’s “12 Breakout Stars.”

Doors open at 6 p.m. for concession and bar; seating begins at 6:30 p.m., with Gladstone’s introduction to the film slated for 7 p.m.
