BRILLIANT MOVIE ABOUT & BY A WOMAN WHO WALKS AHEAD
1 July 2018 | by muhmmadyounusSee all my reviews

Susanna White, the director of WOMAN WALKS AHEAD creates a movie that takes historical facts & transforms them into a stunningly beautiful tale of search, discovery, redemption & the powerful reality of creativity & defeat. Jessica Chastain gives a deeply human portrait of a woman on the edge of a new world where nothing is as it should be and she discovers what is most important and significant for all individuals seeking a higher truth. The acting across the board is excellent- Susanna White has a very special way with actors that brings out the best in them without any overcompensation of "acting." This movie is so beautiful shot & edited it could be viewed as a silent film loaded with natural physical beauty (New Mexico) that overwhelms the eyes, brain & heart. I suggest anyone who cares about the future of real movies, directed with an original sensibility sorely lacking in most movies today, submit to this courageous & heartfelt exploration of indigenous people & a single white soul lost in history and revealed in WOMAN WALKS AHEAD.
