kristen stewart certain women lily gladstoneRemember when everyone was praising Kristen Stewart at the Cannes film festival? Well now we get to see a snippet of her critically acclaimed performance in Certain Women‘s first trailer. The melancholic drama follows four women in Montana including Beth Travis, a young lawyer played by Stewart.

Laura Dern and Michelle Williams are also stars in the flick, but it’s Lily Gladstone’s performance that stands out and allows Stewart’s character to shine. The Wrap‘s Alonso Duralde writes

Jamie’s [Gladstone] affection for Beth, and the surprising turns that affection takes, gives “Certain Women” its most heartfelt moments; Gladstone has the open, expressive face of a silent film star, and she beams in the presence of Stewart, herself providing another understated and heartfelt performance.

Gladstone also brings much needed diversity to the cast. The actress grew up on the Blackfeet Reservation in Northwestern Montana and is involved in social justice and human rights advocacy.

And we promised an Alisten update – the couple seem to be going strong. KStew and Alicia Cargile  were just spotted shopping at a pet store in L.A. and grabbing dinner. #AlistenForever!
