Montana Story

Mountains, unmovable, frame every shot in this soft, steady drama about a pair of estranged siblings who are brought together when their father falls into a coma. Cal is calm and solid, even with a hurricane of emotions happening within him regarding his relationship with their abusive father and the ways in which he failed to protect his sister. Erin (played by Haley Lu Richardson) is sharp and sure and moves faster than her emotions can keep up with. She ran away after a violent blowout with her father seven years ago and headed east, where the sky was small and the mountains not so confining. Brother and sister haven’t seen each other since. When Cal and Erin both come back to the sprawling ranch they used to call home, over the deathbed of a man they both resent, reconciliation becomes a possibility. For a reflection on the healing power of both forgiveness and vengeance, look no further than MONTANA STORY. —J.H.
