In the Tuttle family, the past is not to be discussed. But when their estranged and silent brother is spotted at a hometown diner twenty years after a confounding childhood crime, buried memories and unspoken bounties hatch one boozy, plotting Thanksgiving. In the depths of Wyoming's wilderness, the family herd must stick together or teeter towards the way of the buffalo.

"...Naturalistic exchanges deftly handle exposition and, as evidenced by the laughter of the packed house, are often also very funny."
"Original music from Robin Pecknold, of indie-folk powerhouse Fleet Foxes, and Neal Morgan that appropriately evokes a kind of windswept melancholy."
"The family reunion arranged here by Watkins and Taymor is one well worth attending."

"Wyoming is a beautiful tour through a difficult mystery, wandering and as unexpected as the majesty of the landscape it all lives within."
