    Review: 'Meek's Cutoff' Shows The Foibles Of Man & Helplessness Of Women On The Forgotten Frontier

    "Meek's Cutoff" takes place in the open fields of the midwest, the year 1845, the land untouched, civilization slowly being built, but where the film feels contemporary, with its period-specific detail, all thick bonnets and dirt-stained wagons, is in its intimacy.
