'Wind River': Desolate, frozen, compelling . . .

Welcome to Wyoming!

This is the first sign of a thaw from Summer's forced dreck of animated and lightweight kids movies. 'Wind River' takes in you into the very adult world of a frozen Wyoming, a brutal crime, and the plight and condition of the Native American.

Renner is a pro-hunter for Forestry and Wildlife on the federal reservation lands. We begin with him protecting a herd of sheep from the big bad wolves. As he continues to track he picks up human footprints in the snow and soon finds the frostbitten body of a young, pretty NA girl. The first available FBI agent is Olsen who has a rocky start on the investigation which leads them to the parents, a group of druggies, and finally to a camp of security guards protecting a few drilling rigs.

We see the Native American personality, how they communicate, what their natural expectations are, and how they express grief.

Well written with a top-performing central cast. Certainly worth a walk-in to welcome the first of cinematic autumn.
