Meek’s Cutoff (2010)

Rated PG

Meek’s Cutoff is a snapshot of a group settlers lost along the Oregon Trail. Starring Michelle Williams, Bruce Greenwood, Will Patton, Zoe Kazan, Paul Dano, Shirley Henderson

One of my biggest pet peeves with some films is that filmmakers thing it’s enjoyable to watch just a snap shot of people’s lives. I hate that but I’m trying to give an unbiased view, so here it is. The acting was wonderful; the cast was perfectly casted. The story is true to the time period and what probably happened to some of the settlers as well as the decisions that they would have to make. In that sense it’s a wonderful film. To me, it lacked story, I like to know more than what they present. I felt bored by lack of information given.

    True, if you’re looking for brisk pacing and a plot-driven script, you’re gonna be disappointed by this. But Meek’s Cutoff made me feel something – whether it was sympathy for people hopelessly lost in a strange land, or fear at what their desperation could make them capable of, I’m not sure. And that last scene … I’ve been haunted by it ever since I saw it.
