Certain Women (2016)

Director: Kelly Reichardt. Cast: Michelle Williams, Kristen Stewart, Laura Dern, Jared Harris. 107 min. Rated R. Drama.

Three stories, connected by supporting characters, about women playing major roles in society, but whose voices are literally "not heard". Not sure if this was intentional, but the film poses the question: Are these women truly not being heard, or do they just perceive as being ignored themselves? The main problem is, a little narrative stimulus would've helped, because the stories are so boring. (The core of one is simply a man talking to another man and ignoring a woman.) And I still don't understand why Stewart, with all her attractiveness, is considered such a firecracker at acting.
