Michelle WIlliams’ ‘Meek’s Cutoff’ lassoed by Oscilloscope

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Oscilloscope Laboratories has acquired North American distribution rights to Kelly Reichardt’s western drama, “Meek’s Cutoff,” which played this year’s Venice and Toronto film festivals to positive reviews.

Ocilloscope worked with Reichardt on her 2008 release, “Wendy and Lucy,” which also starred Michelle Williams.

Set in 1845, “Cutoff” follows a wagon train of three families who have hired mountain man Stephen Meek to guide them over the Cascade Mountains. Claiming to know a short cut, 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.

“We’re all super glad to be working with the Oscilloscope family again and we’re looking forward to the ride,” Reichardt said.

Adam Yauch, head of Oscilloscope said, “It’s hard to put words together that can convey how excited we are to work with Kelly and her team again. It is an honor to work with filmmakers of this caliber, especially given the fact that, through the process of releasing ‘Wendy and Lucy,’ we have become friends with them, so really I could not ask for more.

“As a side note,” Yauch continued. “‘Meek’s Cutoff’ is so real feeling and looking that I suspect Kelly may have stolen our plans and completed work on a time-machine that we had been putting the finishing touches on, and that ‘Meek’s’ is actually a documentary that she went back and shot in 1845. If anyone has any evidence to that effect, please contact me directly ASAP. My email address is any@oscilloscope.net.”

O-Scope will release the film in the first half of 2011.
