About Meek's Cutoff (2010)

The year is 1845, the earliest days of the Oregon Trail, and a wagon train of three families has hired mountain man Stephen Meek to guide them over the Cascade Mountains. Claiming to know a shortcut, Meek leads the group on an unmarked path across the high plain desert, only to become lost in the dry rock and sage. Over the coming days, the emigrants face the scourges of hunger, thirst and their own lack of faith in one another's instincts for survival. When a Native American wanderer crosses their path, the emigrants are torn between their trust in a guide who has proven himself unreliable and a man who has always been seen as a natural born enemy.

Directed by Kelly Reichardt. Screenplay by Jon Raymond. Produced by Elizabeth Cuthrell, Neil Kopp, Anish Savjani, and David Urrutia.

Provided courtesy of Oscilloscope Laboratories. Rated PG. Running time: 104 minutes.
