Plot synopsis:
“The film explores a pivotal yet little-known encounter between a pioneering European artist and an Indigenous icon.
A strong-willed nonconformist, Swissborn, New York–bred Catherine Weldon (Jessica Chastain) lived life on her own terms. She was a passionate painter, and by the 1880s had become committed to the cause of Native Americans. Woman Walks Ahead chronicles Weldon’s journey to Dakota to paint Hunkpapa Lakota holy man Sitting Bull (Michael Greyeyes). Far more than a mere portrait session, the meeting inspires a conversation that will change both artist and subject.
Weldon became Sitting Bull’s secretary, interpreter, and advocate, but not before these two powerful people would contend with their differences in assumptions, in outlook, and in the long reach of their respective histories.”

You may recognize Actor Michael Greyeyes as Sitting Bull and Actress Jessica Chastain as Catherine Weldon. Do you think love is in the air for those two?

Still no official release date.

Plot synopsis:
“The story follows Catherine Weldon (Jessica Chastain), who moved from Brooklyn to the Standing Rock Reservation in Dakota Territory to help Sioux chieftain Sitting Bull keep the land for his people. Weldon wrote letters to the federal government on behalf of Sitting Bull and lived on the land for several years with her son.”

What do you think of Jessica Chastain as Sitting Bull’s white squaw? She’s a bit too slim, nope?

Anyway, love Sitting Bull’s colorful garment, so kitsch!

Still no official release date.

Actress Jessica Chastain will have the lead role as Catherine Weldon, “Sitting Bull’s white squaw”, in Woman Walks Ahead, the upcoming biography drama movie directed by Susanna White based on a script by Steven Sknight. Here’s the official plot synopsis:

Plot synopsis of Woman Walks Ahead:
“In 1889, widow Catherine (Caroline) Weldon (Jessica Chastain) leaves behind her unsatisfying life in New York City to pursue her dream to be a painter, and bravely travels alone to the Dakota Territory, with the goal of painting the infamous Sioux chief Sitting Bull. Despite his fearsome reputation, Catherine is surprised to discover that Sitting Bull is a more complex and intriguing man than she expected to find, and their relationship grows and deepens. But as the U.S. government plots to force the Plains Indians to abandon their land and move onto reservations, Catherine, Sitting Bull and the Plains Indians will be swept up in the dramatic and violent history that will end with the devastating battle at Wounded Knee. From Academy Award® nominated writer Steven Knight, comes a beautiful story about love and legacy, set amidst the epic backdrop of the Native American struggle against the US government’s takeover of their land.”

Here’s a picture of the real-life Catherine Weldon (following comments from our readers we updated the picture, so yep now that’s her, but in her old age):
