Certain Women

“It would be so lovely,” muses the lawyer played by Laura Dern in Kelly Reichardt’s Certain Women, “to think that if I were a man, I could explain the law and people would listen … that would be so restful.” In this subdued and allusive film, that’s the closest any character comes to making a thematic statement of purpose.
