American Woman

Dir. Jake Scott. UK/USA, 2018. 1h 52m. Starring Sienna Miller, Christina Hendricks, Aaron Paul, Amy Madigan, Will Sasso, Sky Ferreira.

In a blue-collar town in Pennsylvania, a 32-year-old woman’s teen daughter goes missing and she is left to raise her infant grandson alone. Told over the course of 11 years, this story of a mother’s grief is told with striking honesty and is backed by a devastatingly powerful performance from Sienna Miller.

‘Miller finally gets the chance to demonstrate what she can do as a proper protagonist, breaking away from the stereotypes she's too often played.’ ★★★★ Roxana Hadadi, The AV Club

‘The performances are excellent, and Ingelsby's dialogue largely rings true. But while the movie is indeed considered and conscientious, it's also careful.’ Glenn Kenny, The New York Times
