Erica Tremblay’s poignant debut drama adds to the valuable but still small body of films bringing the present-day Native American experience to wider attention. Killers of the Flower Moon breakout star Lily Gladstone bolsters her reputation as petty criminal Jax, who has been looking after her 13-year-old niece, Roki (Isabel Deroy-Olsen), since her sister Tawi vanished. As she searches for Tawi, Jax drags the trusting Roki away from their Seneca–Cayuga reservation into her own murky world of shoplifting and car theft, barely realising what a bad influence she is on the girl. Questions of identity and belonging – tribal and familial – swirl under an arresting road movie mystery. Simon Wardell
