Britta Sjogren (US, 91 min)
Two driven, imperfect women are the heroes of this contemporary Western. From opposite sides of the track — a privileged young doctor and a convicted felon with ties to the Black Panthers — Anna (Lily Rabe) and Tess (LisaGay Hamilton) have nothing in common except a fatal pessimism about life, the legacy of deep personal loss. But fate carves a bridge between the two outsiders — and, united in a grief that sets them apart from the world, they form an unlikely, mythic alliance, seeking justice outside the law.
