Moody 'Montana': Haley Lu Richardson, Owen Teague star in a tale of family resentment

Whether it’s meant to or not, the gorgeously mounted “Montana Story” is a sneakily perceptive metaphor for a nation divided against itself, a microcosm of love twisted into bitterness, and the obliteration of the mythical land of opportunity. It’s built upon the doings of estranged half-siblings returning to the rotted rural homestead of their father, who – like democracy – is on life support, to address perceived betrayals and flail at recapturing an idyllic childhood financed at the...
