Kelly Reichardt on how she got to Kristen Stewart

The writer/director reveals how she landed the Hollywood megastar for her new film Certain Women.

To mere mortals watching from the sidelines, all directors and actors whose films make it into cinemas have achieved a flicker of immortality. But behind-the-scenes personal icons are tiered according to mainstream appeal.

Kelly Reichardt works resolutely outside of the Hollywood system, making integrity-fuelled art, and so money and industry reach are not her currency. Meanwhile, despite an ongoing foray into fascinating indie projects, Kristen Stewart’s post-Twilight glow is like a lighthouse beckoning all comers. So how did the former sidestep the crowds around the latter in order to cast her as Elizabeth Travis in Certain Women?

“Some friends of mine made a film with Kristen, Still Alice, so they gave the script [for Certain Women] to her. Her response was, ‘If it happens, let me know, and I’ll come do this’, but right up until the day she arrived on set, we were like, ‘Is Kristen Stewart really going to show up?’ And then there she was. It was like, ‘Oh hey, here you are.’”

“I had worked with Dakota Fanning and with Jesse Eisenberg [on 2014’s Night Moves] and they are two of her closest friends, so they put in a good word. I had had really fun experiences with both Dakota and Jesse, so I think because of that Kristen was game for it. But she was completely unperturbed by the size of the part. She’s not the lead. She plays a supporting part in the movie, and she made so much of that character.”

“She let Lily Gladstone’s character set the pace and be the focus. She was so generous – a really generous actor, I thought. She helped give it some shape, because Lily’s a really different kind of actor, really intuitive and Kristen, likewise, is an intuitive actor, but she’s also been doing it a long time and she’s a technical actress. I thought that it played well in terms of who the two characters are. She had a barbecue for the crew on the day off and was just totally easy and not at all demanding.”

“I loved her in The Runaways, that’s really what I loved Kristen in most. It’s an imperfect movie but all the women in it are really… I loved the real Runaways so I really did not want a movie of The Runaways, but she’s really good in it!”

First things first, how did you get this great cast?

“.. with Kristen, she was attached for a very long time. She was in my friend’s movie “Still Alice” and it just went from there.”

Kristen is a pretty big name for a Kelly Reichardt movie.

“At first I was worried she’d be too big of a name for the story I was just trying to tell, but she played “small” beautifully and really let that story be Lily’s [Lily Gladstone].”

In indie director Kelly Reichardt’s new movie “Certain Women,” Kristen Stewart and Laura Dern, along with Michelle Williams, make up a trio of intersecting women living in Montana facing quiet challenges in their professional and personal lives.

Even though the characters don’t share screen time, Stewart and Dern have the chemistry of old friends. They opened up to Yahoo Style about women in Hollywood, Montana hipsters, and ghosts.

Kristen Stewart knew she had to work with Kelly Reichardt. The “Wendy and Lucy” filmmaker’s previous movie, “Night Moves,” starred two of her friends, Dakota Fanning and Jesse Eisenberg. “Both of them were like, ‘Do anything with her!’” she recalls. And so we have “Certain Women,” which tells three stories of women: Laura Dern plays a lawyer who gets involved in a hostage situation; Michelle Williams pops up in the second act as a woman lightly struggling with her marriage. Stewart — now an art house queen, as we elaborated upon here — comes in during the third, playing a frazzled night school teacher who draws the mysterious attention of a lonely young women (Lily Gladstone). It’s a sad movie. And Stewart, 26, loves it that way.


We could just spend most of this interview geeking out over Kelly Reichardt together.

KS : I f—king love her. I’m lucky enough to know her, and I can tell you that her movies really reflect her. You watch one and it’s very distinctly her. That’s kind of rare. And she’s not f—ing copying anyone. She’s able to create this whole environment that focuses on moments that happen in between the moments that people often focus on in movies. There’s something biting about her movies, too. I don’t think you laugh, but you think, ‘That’s funny. That’s really funny.’ That describes her s—t to me.


They have this strange quality, where they’re both naturalistic and droney. At times they’re almost like a piece of spacey ambient music.

KS : Most people don’t make films that aren’t really trying to make you feel something all the time. In her case, it creates a sense of meditation, which is f—king rare. I watch her movies and I’m not thinking about it until afterwards. And they’re slow. They’re f—king quiet. There are a lot of gaps that inspire you to spiral off into tangential thoughts. It so absorbs me.


Her new film is a film about women, but it’s not overtly a political statement, or it doesn’t let itself be defined only by that.

KS : They’re each up against something, but not in a way that’s self-aggrandizing. It’s not like, [shakes fist] “I am going to overcome this adversity!” None of them find resolve. They all want something they can’t have. You’ve got Michelle’s character, who’s kind of f—king with the conventional dynamic of what a marriage is. And then you have Laura’s character acknowledging the illogical nature of bureaucracy, and the fact that men don’t listen to women. But she doesn’t really do anything about it. It doesn’t work out for her. It’s agonizing, but in a quiet way. It’s a grind. They’re all f—king exhausted. These women are so tired. I love that.


What about your character?

KS : My chick just wants to feel f—king valid, and she isn’t going to [feel valid] while doing the things she’s doing. And you’ve got Lily’s character, who just wants a friend. She has a crush on someone and doesn’t even know what the hell that even is. She’s looking in all the wrong places. These people are f—king lonely. And it’s f—king painful. There’s a remoteness to all of them that seems learned, it seems protective. And it’s sad.


The interactions between the characters are so complex and speak to this idea that we’ll never really know anyone. But I’d like to argue that acknowledging that we’ll always get people wrong is kind of a relief.

KS : We’re all so unaware of each other. It’s crazy. But [knowing that] does set you free a little bit. It’s weird. I’m constantly, with every friendship, every f—king family relationship, I’m like, “You need to know me!” Then you realize no one can know anyone. And it is relieving. There’s a relief to that. We never really know each other. On the other hand, that’s isolating and scary.


I’ve found that as I’ve gotten older I’ve gotten more chill about not having a deep connection with every person I meet. And as a result I feel more confident and relaxed, strangely.

KS : Seriously. You just need to relax a little bit. I’ve done that as I’ve gotten older, too. When I was younger I got super-freaked out if there wasn’t a clarity to every exchange. Now it’s like, ‘That’s fine, whatever, I don’t care.’


There’s a fun running gag in “Certain Women”‘s diner scenes where your character keeps ordering food then only takes a couple bites before ditching it.

KS : She just has no time for f—king anything. And she definitely doesn’t do anything that’s nice for herself. And it was such a bitch getting through those meals, because we shot every scene in the diner in one night. So I’m eating the cheeseburger and the grilled sandwich and a sundae and a soup. I thought I was going to die. By the end of the night I was sweating [laughs], like, ‘Oh my god, I’m going to puke.’ It’s everything I would have gotten, but all at the same time. It was gnarly. … hahaaa lollll

The films of Kelly Reichardt tend to be small and minimalist, but they aim for the jugular, and they don’t miss. They’re gently told stories about people with fragile, ordinary shells that through the progress of story and circumstance end up cracking, revealing extraordinary inner lives. Reichardt’s steadiness and grace as a storyteller, seen in films like Old JoyWendy and Lucy, and Night Moves, have earned her a spot among the giants of American independent cinema. Her films are always set out West—in Oregon, mainly—even though Reichardt herself was born in Miami and has made her permanent home in New York City for more than a decade.  

Her latest movie, the quietly powerful Certain Women, took Reichardt and her crew to small-town Montana, where she endeavored to tell a triptych of character studies based on the short stories of Maile Meloy. In the first of these stories, Laura Dern plays a lawyer dealing with a very low-key hostage situation (everything in Reichardt’s films feels low-key, even when it’s not). In the second act, Michelle Williams, who has worked with Reichardt on Wendy and Lucy and the Western Meek’s Cutoff, plays a wife and mother trying to build a country home while her marriage unravels. And finally, newcomer Lily Gladstone stars as a shy rancher who falls for her introverted night school teacher played by Kristen Stewart, who was born to be in a Kelly Reichardt film.
