Kelly Reichardt’s darkly funny debut feature River of Grass (1994) arrives on Spamflix with the 2016 restorated version.
River of Grass brought the writer/director back to the setting of her adolescence, the suburban landscape of southern Florida, where she grew up with her detective father and narcotics agent mother. Shot on 16mm, Reichardt described the story as "a road movie without the road, a love story without the love, and a crime story without the crime". The film introduces viewers to a director already in command of her craft and defining her signature style.
Synopsis: Cozy, a thirtyish Florida housewife bored to tears with her drudging life, runs away with Lee, a young loser in search of thrills. After accidentally shooting a man, Cozy and Lee try to go on the lam as every outlaw couple before them—without quite ever getting it right.
