The expanses of the American Northwest take centre stage in this intimately observed triptych from Kelly Reichardt. Adapted from three short stories by Maile Meloy and unfolding in self-contained but interlocking episodes, Certain Women navigates the subtle shifts in personal desire and social expectation that unsettle the circumscribed lives of its characters: a lawyer (Laura Dern) forced to subdue a troubled client; a woman (Michelle Williams) whose plans to construct her dream home reveal fissures in her marriage; and a night-school teacher (Kristen Stewart) who forms a tenuous bond with a lonely ranch hand (Lily Gladstone), whose unguardedness and deep attachment to the land deliver an unexpected jolt of emotional immediacy. With unassuming craft, Reichardt captures the rhythms of daily life in small-town Montana through these fine-grained portraits of women trapped within the landscape’s wide-open spaces. DIRECTOR-APPROVED SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES: New 2K digital transfer, supervised by director Kelly Reichardt and cinematographer Christopher Blauvelt, with 5.1 surround DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack New interviews with the film’s cast and crew, including Reichardt and executive producer Todd Haynes New interview with Maile Meloy, author of the stories on which the film is based Trailer PLUS: An essay by critic Ella Taylor

A Henderson’s Ranch romance story Mac Henderson started out no more of a ranch owner than he did a Navy SEAL. Adrift on the post-college tide of the ’70s, with no direction planned, he headed west to surf. But fate had other plans for him - beneath Montana’s Big Sky. A broken starter motor during Cheyenne Frontier Days led him to witness Ama’s traditional dance for her tribe. Since that moment, for 20 years, she has believed in his dream, inspired him, and given him a son (Mark Henderson). It was only when Mac retired that she found her own dream. Her reward? Finding Henderson’s Ranch. 1. Language: English. Narrator: M. L. Buchman. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/156939/bk_acx0_156939_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

In partnership with Texas Monthly, Gary Cartwright's "Showdown at Waggoner Ranch" is now available as an audio download, where the length and timeliness of a podcast meets the high-quality production of a full-length audio program. "Showdown at Waggoner Ranch" is the saga of Texas's second-largest ranch and its shambles of an inheritance left by W.T. Waggoner to his descendants. It is a history of a sliver of Texas's elite, how they made their money and how they, often scandalously, spent their time. Simultaneously, it is a nod to the cowboy lifestyle that stands at risk should the feud of the Waggoner inheritance actually put the fate of the ranch at risk. With a rollicking cast of characters - Native American chiefs, Teddy Rooosevelt, an eight-time divorcee, the best and richest of East Coast society - Gary Cartwright offers a rich exploration into the creation of an empire and its imminent downfall. 1.
