Synopsis

Living on Pine Ridge Reservation with their single mother, Johnny and his sister Jashuan’s lives develop new challenges when their absentee cowboy father suddenly dies. The loss prompts Johnny to strike out for Los Angeles, but it would mean leaving behind his beloved sister.

Our take

Before her breakthrough The Rider and Golden Lion-winning Nomadland, Chloé Zhao came to prominence with her similarly beautiful and melancholic first feature. A portrait of life on the fringes of American society, Songs… is impressively brought to life by its nonprofessional actors.
