"River of Grass is very funny, but in a more somber key it also test-drives what will become Reichardt's specialty: the transformation of cheerless wastelands into backdrops for journeys of the parched soul."—Ella Taylor, NPR

"With an ear for dialogue that burns deep and bright, and an eye for mad detail, Reichardt here proves herself a formidable talent."—Manohla Dargis, Spin



In the run-down, torpid area between Miami and the Everglades, a dissatisfied housewife, Cozy, and Lee Ray, the live-at-home handyman she meets in a bar, are involved in an accidental shooting. Thinking they have committed murder they decide to flee, but their natures and bank balances ensure they don't get very far. River of Grass is the directorial debut of Kelly Reichardt, known for beloved and acclaimed works such as Wendy and Lucy, First Cow, and Showing Up.
