Nia DaCosta’s absorbing debut is laced with urgent dread, experienced by characters you care deeply about. – Sam Weisberg, Village Voice
Set in a fracking boomtown in North Dakota, Little Woods’ wide-open prairies are inhabited by people who have little room to move. Trapped by poverty and failed by a broken health system, for them it’s hard work for little return. First-time writer/director Nia DaCosta has drawn a rich world of dynamic characters, complex relationships, and hard choices that recalls Winter’s Bone. She expertly draws on crime movie tropes to tell an important story: that of the female rural poor.
