So I went to see “Wind River” last night. A review later. Here’s the thing, though: when I got home I scrolled through the “Wind River” tag for a good ten minutes and it was ALL Jeremy Renner and Elizabeth Olsen.
NONE of the Native actors were pictured or even talked about. I was stunned.
I like Elizatbeth Olson as much as the next person, but this guy?
This is Gil Birmingham, and if you want the most powerful two scenes in the movie, they were the ones between Mr. Birmingham and Jeremy Renner. Gil Birmingham acted the shit out of his role, and the way he and Renner played off of each other in the pivotal scenes they had together was amazing.
Give the Native actors in Wind River some cred, folks. They were all amazing.
