The Sundance Film Festival is to filmmakers like reaching the summit of Everest. It can make careers or actors, directors, and writers. At the 2017 Sundance Film Festival, one of the favorite films, Wind River, is set in the Cowboy State

Rolling Stone Magazine published 15 Best Movies and Performances of 2017 Sundance Film Festival, and the movie directed by Taylor Sheridan was top on their list. It starts Elizabeth Olson and Jeremy Renner.

Few working screen scribes have such a knack for this kind of jagged-edged dialogue; no one has used Renner's rugged, disaffected persona this well since The Hurt Locker.- David Fear writes in Rolling Stone

The movie is a dramatic cat and mouse crime drama set in the winter wilderness in Wyoming. There is a murder on the Wind River Indian Reservation, and the FBI agent (Olson) needs tracking and survival help from local Fish and Game Officer (Renner.)

This film is Sheridan's directorial debut. He is most known for his role in Son's of Anarchy as Deputy Chief David Hale.
