From acclaimed writer of Sicario and Hell or High Water, Taylor Sheridan comes the gritty Wind River. Set in the unforgiving wilderness of Wyoming, the film follows hunter Cory Lambert (Jeremy Renner), who comes across a young Native American girl that’s died from exposure to the harsh winter conditions. Lambert finds himself teamed up with FBI agent Jane Banner (Elizabeth Olsen), and they soon come to discover there’s much more to this case than meets the eye.
No Country for Old Men (2007)
Considered to be one the Coen Brothers’ best films, the Oscar-winning No Country for Old Men is a intense neo-western that will surely leave you both amazed and shocked by the end. Starring Josh Brolin (Everest), Javier Bardem (Skyfall) and Tommy Lee Jones (Jason Bourne), the film follows an everyday man who accidentally comes across a drug deal gone wrong – which includes multiple corpses and a suitcase full of cash. The film is a fascinating cat-and-mouse chase between good, evil, and everyone in between.
