The Keeping Room - posterThat feminist western you didn’t know you wanted? Here’s the first trailer and poster for it. Entitled The Keeping Room, the film stars Brit Marling, Hailee Steinfeld and Muna Otaru as three women who, at the end of the Civil War, have to defend their home from two drunken soldiers. It’s an incredibly intimate story, but one with implications that transcend its small, contained premise.

I’m glad that Drafthouse Films is supporting such a great film – it gets a limited release September 25th, with a national rollout through October.
