Movie poster for “Wind River”.

This was emotional. Since becoming a father, movies including “something bad or sad with children” hit me way harder than before.

Anyhow, this was still a good one. Although a bit conventional. But acting and dialogues and all the subtle interpersonal relationships and emotions as well as the dealing-with-grief topic were really well done. The setting in the winter was great, too. And the real-life cases this story is based on is commendable – and is something I wasn’t aware of to this degree.
