For some unknown reason, whenever I think of the film Wind River, I want to start singing ‘Moon River’ by Andy Williams. No idea why; it just happens. Wind River is a film by Taylor Sheridan, who is also responsible for such thrillers as Sicario and Hell or High Water. This latest film stars Jeremy Renner and Elizabeth Olsen, in very snowy Wyoming. The plot centers around the two attempting to solve the murder of a young woman on Wind River Indian Reservation.
If you loved Get Out (how could you not?), you’ll want to watch some of Daniel Kaluuya’s past work. The twenty-seven English actor is just starting his career, but he’s been involved in some big named projects already. He’s been in the well-known series Skins and Black Mirror and I can imagine that Get Out is going to catapult him into being a household name; especially since he also will be in the highly anticipated upcoming Black Panther movie.
My introduction to Kaluuya was in the 2015 film Sicario. The drama stars Benicio del Toro, Emily Blunt, and Josh Brolin. Emily Blunt plays an FBI agent who gets recruited to join the CIA on a mission to take down a well-known drug cartel leader. Kaluuya plays her partner/only friend/mother figure.
