Murder mystery set on reservation
There’s trouble on Wyoming’s Wind River Native American reservation, and it’s the personal kind for Jeremy Renner’s tracker, Corey Lambert.
In a role far removed from his high-flying Hawkeye in the “Avengers” series, Friday’s “Wind River” sees Renner, 46, as a wildlife officer reluctantly drawn into the murder investigation of a young woman by a rookie FBI officer (Elizabeth Olsen).
“For me, learning about Native American life on the reservation, the atrocities that have happened, was a great learning experience in many ways.”
Lambert, he noted, “is the only white man that’s allowed on the reservation, essentially. He’s there inadvertently because he was married to a Native American woman and he’s accepted enough into the culture to do the things he does.
“He’s a broken man trying to overcome his own personal obstacles.”
Those include a young son he rarely sees.
