Reviews:
"[A] few details are worth applauding. Topmost is the depiction of the breathtaking natural beauty of North Dakota’s plains that practically cries out for gilded frames." - 06/29/2018 RogerEbert.com


"It’s a lovely film to look at, with cinematography that vividly captures both hue and saturation, from the intense yellow and purple paint in the railroad dining car where Weldon first meets the film’s villain to the wispy pastel blues and pinks of a Dakota sunset." - 06/28/2018 A.V. Club


"[T]he performances are so good and Michael Eley’s vistas, shimmeringly shot in New Mexico, are so stunning, it feels churlish to resist." - 06/28/2018 New York Times


"Mike Eley’s cinematography and Geoffrey Kirkland’s aptly spare production design grandly fill the wide screen..." - 09/18/2018 Hollywood Reporter


"With WOMAN WALKS AHEAD director Susanna White adds her own firm voice to the dialogue -- boldly embodied by Jessica Chastain -- and together, director and star bring their distaff perspective to the chapter immediately before the massacre at Wounded Knee." - 09/11/2017 Variety
