(2017) (Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen) (R)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Dramatic Thriller: A wildlife officer helps an FBI agent solve a murder mystery involving a teenage Native American.
- Cory Lambert (JEREMY RENNER) is a Wyoming based U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service officer known for his ability to track down and kill predators that have been afflicting farms on the remote and usually snowy Wind River Indian reservation. Tasked with finding a troublesome mountain lion, he follows its tracks, only to discover the frozen and seemingly murdered body of Natalie Hanson (KELSEY ASBILLE), an 18-year-old from the reservation. This strikes Cory to the core, what with Natalie having been best friends with his teenage daughter a few years back before her unsolved murder. That eventually led to the end of his marriage to his Native American wife, Wilma (JULIA JONES), with whom he has joint custody of their young son, Casey (TEO BRIONES).
With Natalie's parents, Martin (GIL BIRMINGHAM) and Annie (ALTHEA SAM), now informed of their daughter's death, Cory and tribal police chief Ben (GRAHAM GREENE) await the arrival of FBI field agent Jane Banner (ELIZABETH OLSEN). Not prepared for the cold environs -- what with being stationed in Las Vegas and only called upon because she was the closest agent while on vacation -- Jane sets out to solve the case, and she enlists Cory's aid in navigating the snowy woods and following tracks.
That eventually leads to them tracking down Natalie's small-time drug dealer brother, Chip (MARTIN SENSMEIER), as well as looking for the oil company worker, Matt (JON BERNTHAL), she was apparently seeing, along with some of his unsavory co-workers, such as Pete (JAMES JORDAN). As Cory works hard to help Jane by tracking down the killer, he must contend with the emotions all of this brings back regarding his own daughter, her untimely death, and his inability to solve that case.
- WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
- Older teens might be intrigued, especially if they're fans of anyone in the cast, or the writer's previous work such as "Hell or High Water" and "Sicario."
- WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
- For strong violence, a rape, disturbing images, and language.
