In this character-driven thriller, Thandiwe Newton stars as a Black professor in a remote college town, whose confrontation with two hunters trespassing on her land escalates as she refuses to back down. The gorgeous cinematography of snowy Montana gives the viewer an immediate sense of her isolation as she grieves for the recent loss of her mother, navigates her all-white, predominantly male colleagues, and struggles to enlist the support of the local sheriff before taking matters into her own hands. Director Julian Higgins and Writer Shaye Ogbonna in person.
