Synopsis

High school senior Johnny is about to leave the Pine Ridge Reservation when his rodeo-cowboy father suddenly dies. Reluctant to leave his 13-year-old sister behind, Johnny must face an inner conflict standing in the way of his departure, which leads both of them to rediscover the meaning of home.

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.
