A sculptor (Michelle Williams) preparing to open a new show must balance her creative life with the daily dramas of family, friends and an injured bird. Featuring a stellar ensemble cast — Hong Chau, André Benjamin and John Magaro, among others — Kelly Reichardt’s vibrant and captivatingly funny portrait of art and craft set amongst the milieu of a small Portland arts college captures the simplistic beauty and challenges intrinsic to creative endeavor.

“SHOWING UP is an absolute, wry joy of a little comedy about making art and living life…The film feels pulled from familiar reality for anyone who’s ever tried to make creative work — and it’s quiet, clever, and a whole lot of fun.” —Alissa Wilkinson, Vox

“There are few cinematic joys that match the arrival of a new film by Kelly Reichardt, a director who, across a career of eight features and numerous shorts, has developed an affecting signature of movement and steadiness, solitude and community.” —Caitlin Quinlan, Little White Lies

“It demonstrates once again that Reichardt’s work with Michelle Williams is among the most rewarding collaborations of contemporary American independent cinema.” —David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter
