Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History says
Augusta (BRIT MARLING), her younger sister Louise (HAILEE STEINFELD) and a former slave, Mad, (MUNA OTARU) band together in a southern farmhouse to defend themselves against a pair of vicious Yankee scouts (SAM WORTHINGTON, KYLE SOLLER) during Sherman’s infamous Civil War march from Atlanta to Savannah. Women are central to the action in Oscar-nominated director Daniel Barber’s deftly shot and meticulously crafted genre-bending western. There are no nurses here. No caretakers of men. And in the game of cat-and-mouse that enfolds between the women and the soldiers, the hunters can just as easily become the hunted. While most films are celebrated for a single strong female lead, The Keeping Room presents no less than three, intricately weaving commentary about both race and gender stereotypes into a tense, borderline apocalyptic survive-or-die tale. Drama/Western | English | 95 min.
