Award-winning director Kelly Reichardt returns with the eagerly awaited First Cow, a gripping and glorious story of friendship and petty crime on the harsh frontier of the Pacific Northwest. In 1820s Oregon, two loners team up to seek their fortune through a scheme to steal milk from the wealthy landowner’s prized Jersey cow – the first, and only, in the territory – to create delicious fried cakes for sale at the market. This sumptuous tale of male friendship, pilfered dairy and the pursuit of the American dream is a true masterpiece from one of the great modern American filmmakers.
