First Cow

” Celebrating the milk of human kindness” – The Guardian

A taciturn loner and skilled cook (John Magaro) has travelled west and joined a group of fur in Oregon Territory, though he only finds true connection with a Chinese immigrant (Orion Lee) also seeking his fortune; soon the two collaborate on a successful business, although its longevity is reliant upon the clandestine participation of a nearby wealthy landowner’s prized milking cow.

From this simple premise Reichardt constructs an interrogation depicting a friendship, yet is driven by a mounting suspense all its own.
