Writer-director Kelly Reichardt’s film Certain Women was well received at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival, and René’s performance as “Albert” prompted positive reviews:
“Reichardt’s “Certain Women” stars the powerhouse trio of Laura Dern, Kristen Stewart and Michelle Williams, a virtuosic Rene Auberjonois and a radiant Lily Gladstone.” –Los Angeles Times
“…all the performances are rock-solid, with all the players making the most of the writer-director’s gifts at silence and suggestion. Dern has been cornering the market on beatific moms lately, so it’s a treat to watch her play an intelligent, unsatisfied, exasperated woman, and seeing the legendary Auberjonois on the prairie immediately calls to mind his supporting role in the Robert Altman classic McCabe & Mrs. Miller.” –The Wrap

As soon as we hear details of when and where it will be released, we’ll post that information here.
