'The Cold Lands' Review

I'm a huge Kelly Reichardt fan, and there was something about The Cold Lands (written and directed by Tom Gilroy) that made me think of her movies. It's about a boy whose mother dies, leaving him to fend for himself in the woods surrounding their upstate New York home. Quiet, reflective, observant, The Cold Lands has a decent amount of atmosphere. But it's not a particularly strong movie, unfortunately. My review is up at Paste.
