Hawkhurst

First Cow (12A) 122mins

Two travellers, on the run from a band of vengeful hunters in the 1820s Northwest, dream of striking it rich - but their tenuous plan to make their fortune on the frontier comes to rely on the secret use of a wealthy landowner's prized dairy cow – the first, and only, in the territory.

Award-winning director Kelly Reichardt (Meek’s Cutoff, Wendy and Lucy) returns with the eagerly awaited First Cow, a gripping and glorious story of friendship, petty crime and the pursuit of the American dream on the harsh frontier of the Pacific Northwest.

A true masterpiece from one of the great modern American filmmakers.

Starring John Magaro, Orion Lee and Toby Jones.

 

'Shot with beautiful simplicity' ★★★★★The Guardian

'Pitch-perfect' The Telegraph

'sensual, bleak and meticulously authentic' ★★★★★London Evening Standard




'archetypal Kelly Reichardt, slow, small and perfectly formed, elevated by stellar but understated performances from John Magaro and Orion Lee'  ★★★★Empire

'If films could chew the cud, this one would, slowly and rhythmically, but also hypnotically. I hesitate to use the word 'masterpiece', but in its singular way, it is' ★★★★★Daily Mail

'A fable of land and freedom that serves as an up-close-and-personal portrait of friendship and a wider snapshot of America, rooted in the rich soil of the Pacific north-west' ★★★★Mark Kermode, Observer
