Wind River Movie Review & Film Summary


Movie Plot:

After finding the body of an 18-year-old woman on an American Indian reservation in the frozen wilderness of Wyoming, a divorced federal wildlife officer helps a less experienced FBI agent to solve the mystery of teen’s rape and murder.

Cory Lambert ( Jeremy Renner), is a divorced federal wildlife officer who makes his living by killing predators that prey on the animals of the wilderness of the Indian Reservation in Wyoming. Searching for a mountain lion, he finds a frozen corpse of a young woman who was raped and killed. The woman was the best friend of Cory’s daughter, who had died in similar conditions three years ago.

As a result of this homicide, the F.B.I. sends Jane Banner (Elizabeth Olsen), a relatively less experienced agent, to investigate the case. Cory helps Jane in solving the mystery behind teen’s rape and murder.

The movie builds very well to a well thought climax where the bad guys responsible for the girl’s death come in the open to battle the investigators.

It’s a very well made movie that will keep the viewers on the edge of their seats right from he beginning till the end, with a consistent chill in the spine.

4.5 out of 5 stars – highly recommended.
