Montana Story Review: A Neo-Western with Heart in Big Sky Country

An estranged brother and sister come to terms over their abusive father in Big Sky Country. Montana Story is a powerfully dramatic tale of reconciliation. The narrative moves at a deliberative pace that feels meandering at times. The filmmakers use these intermittent lulls to gorge the audience on a picturesque setting. Montana's snow-capped mountains, its inclement weather, and Native people provide a rich backdrop to heavy themes. A noticeable fault centers on a supporting character that serves as a plot tool for simple exposition. Montana Story could have been more impactful if the leads were directly confrontational about their significant issues.
