Wind River (PG) Wind River is a con­tem­po­rary thriller set in the bleak snowy wilder­ness of Wy­oming. Cory Lam­bert (Jeremy Ren­ner), a wildlife of­fi­cer, stum­bles on the frozen corpse of a young Na­tive Amer­i­can woman, Natalie. FBI agent Jane Ban­ner (Eliz­a­beth Olsen) flies in from Las Ve­gas and is com­pletely un­used to the bit­terly cold con­di­tions she en­coun­ters in Wy­oming in win­ter. She seeks the help of Cory as her guide be­cause he knows the area well. There’s an­other con­nec­tion: his daugh­ter, who was a friend of the dead girl, had died three years ear­lier and her loss was a con­tribut­ing fac­tor in the breakup of his mar­riage. The set-up in which an out­side in­ves­ti­ga­tor is sent to an in­hos­pitable lo­ca­tion to solve a mur­der isn’t new, but direc­tor Tay­lor Sheri­dan brings a fresh­ness to the con­cept.
