The first official trailer has been released for Certain Women, the upcoming drama starring Kristen Stewart, Michelle Williams, Laura Dern, and newcomer Lily Gladstone.

The film tells of three women whose lives intersect in small-town America. Williams plays a mother and wife determined to build her dream home; Dern plays a lawyer on the receiving end of office sexism while trying to diffuse a hostage situation; and Stewart plays a young law student who forms a bond with a ranch hand (Gladstone).

Early reviews have been very impressive for this one. The film had its debut at Sundance, where it received wide acclaim from critics praising the performances and the strong, emotional work from writer-director Kelly Reichardt.

Reichardt previously directed Williams in Wendy and Lucy and Meek’s Cutoff.

Certain Women, which also screened at the Sydney and Melbourne International Film Festivals, will open in the U.S. on October 14.

Synopsis for Certain Women:

One of America’s foremost filmmakers, Kelly Reichardt (Wendy and Lucy, Meek’s Cutoff) directs a remarkable ensemble cast led by Michelle Williams, Kristen Stewart, Laura Dern and newcomer Lily Gladstone in this stirring look at four women striving to forge their own paths amidst the wide-open plains of the American Northwest: a lawyer (Dern) who finds herself contending with both office sexism and a hostage situation; a wife and mother (Williams) whose determination to build her dream home puts her at odds with the men in her life; and a young law student (Stewart) who forms an ambiguous bond with a lonely ranch hand (radiant newcomer Lily Gladstone). As their stories intersect in subtle but powerful ways, a portrait emerges of flawed, but strong-willed individuals in the process of defining themselves.
