Certain Women drops us into a handful of intersecting lives across Montana. A lawyer (Laura Dern) tries to defuse a hostage situation and calm her disgruntled client (Jared Harris), who feels slighted by a workers' compensation settlement. A married couple (Michelle Williams and James Le Gros) breaks ground on a new home but exposes marital fissures when they try to persuade an elderly man to sell his stockpile of sandstone. A ranch hand (Lily Gladstone) forms an attachment to a young lawyer (Kristen Stewart), who inadvertently finds herself teaching a twice-weekly adult education class, four hours from her home.Written by

Perhaps the worst movie I have seen. Granted there is a great cast of interesting actors, which piqued my interest and is the primary the reason I had higher expectations and was so disappointed. However, it's not the acting that makes this movie terrible, the acting is fine. It's the story line, or lack thereof, that makes this movie a real dud. What was the point? Three loosely connected stories featuring women with mundane lives. There is no sound track, the cinematography is bleak and mediocre, the character development is practically non-existent and the ending leaves you flat and empty feeling. It truly was a waste of $12 and 2 hours of my time. With the myriad of movies to choose from, do yourself a favor and pick something else.
