SummaryOllie is barely getting by, an economically depressed fracking boomtown in North Dakota. She has left her days of illegally running prescription pills over the Canadian border behind, eyeing a potential new job that would finally break her out of the small town. But when her mother dies, she is reunited with her estranged sister Deb, who faces a mounting crisis: the combined effect of an unplanned pregnancy and a deadbeat ex.
"This startlingly accomplished debut feature by Nia DaCosta has the eyes and ears of a documentary-the opioid crisis is everywhere, the nearest hospital is far away-but the heart of a drama, and a stirring one."--The Wall Street Journal
"Featuring a dynamite turn from Tessa Thompson as a parolee looking for one last opiod score before going straight, Nia DaCosta's uneven but compelling drama tells you what's it like living down-and-out in the USA."--Rolling Stone
"Tessa Thompson emotionally expands "Little Woods," turning a small movie into something more than its textured parts."--New York Times
