Girls & Gun Fights in 'The Keeping Room' Trailer

Don't just call The Keeping Room a Feminist Western because it is so much more than that! The film stars three of the most kickass women in the biz--Brit Marling, Hailee Steinfeld, and newcomer Muna Otaru. The story takes place during the dying days of the American Civil war where three Southern women--two sisters and one African-American slave--must defend their home and themselves against two strange soldiers. I got a chance to watch it and before I write my review, suffices it to say that you will sweating buckets from the pulsating intensity and panic from the film.

After a successful run in advertising and commercials, Director Daniel Barber went on to create an Oscar-nominated short film called The Tonto Woman before debuting his feature film, Harry Brown starring Michael Caine. It's hard to believe that the The Keeping Room is Julia Hart's first screenplay and Barber's sophomore feature because the film is executed with grade-A suspense. The trailer makes the film look fairly simple but this revisionist Western story packs a big punch. The Keeping Room opens on September 25.
