All Critics (17) | Top Critics (4)

This is a minor-key modern Western whose melancholy probe into the bruising past gives way, in a quietly satisfying conclusion, to the hope of reconciliation, even healing.

Two excellent young performers hold enough of it together, but a languid pace that feels almost designed to mimic the speed of life in Big Sky Country goes too far.

"Montana Story" doesn't reinvent the Western wheel. Rather it offers tender mercies as a sentimental work that explodes in well-earned fury.

Montana Story evokes a grandiose style of American frontier filmmaking, somewhere between John Ford and Kelly Reichardt. See it on the largest screen you can find.

Well-crafted and modest conventional modern day Western family drama.
