Director Emma Tammi and writer Teresa Sutherland reverse traditional Western narratives with this spine-tingling tale of a lonely frontier-woman.

We’re not riding the range with cowboys in this highlight of Toronto’s Midnight Madness programme. We’re inside one of those cabins in the middle of a windswept nowhere, where women fended for themselves while men conquered the land and other men. Caitlin Gerard (Insidious: The Last Key) is superb as Lizzy Macklin. Her grip on reality begins to crumble in the long absences of husband Isaac, as she battles isolation, madness and spiritual demons. Flashbacks and flashes-forward show the couple’s intriguing relationship with neighbour Gideon and his flighty and superstitious wife Emma, who believes demons roam the prairie. This beautifully photographed tale grabs you from its explosive opening scenes and never lets go.

'The Wind' doesn’t seek to make infallible heroes of its women, but to understand and empathize with even their most unforgivable acts.
Jessica Kiang, Variety
It’s refreshing to see such an original stab at this type of indie genre-bender, especially one told from a strictly female point of view.
Jordan Mintzer, The Hollywood Reporter
