Cinematical is happy to premiere the first poster for Kelly Reichardt's indie western, 'Meek's Cutoff,' and we definitely don't want to mess with the gun-toting woman in it. Michelle Williams, who first worked with the filmmaker in 'Wendy and Lucy,' leads the likes of Bruce Greenwood, Paul Dano and rising star Zoe Kazan in a flick that's been grabbing buzz as it makes its way through festivals across the globe.

Based on a true story, 'Meek's Cutoff' is a period western set in 1845 where a braggart, Stephen Meek (Greenwood), meets his match in a courageous woman (Williams) after he is hired by three families to lead them through Oregon's Cascade Mountains so that they may start new lives on the other side. As their water dwindles and they disagree over the treatment of a captured Native American, the group questions Meek's dependability and cracks under pressure.

'Meek's Cutoff' premieres April 8, 2011, and you can hit the jump to see the poster, created by Marlene McCarty, in its entirety.
