Michelle Williams Reveals Indie Filmmaker Kelly Reichardt ‘Has to Teach to Get Health Insurance’

Kelly Reichardt is an award-winning indie filmmaker with years of powerful directing under her belt, and yet she has often struggled to make ends meet. 

We like to think of movie creators and actors as living lavish lifestyles with riches beyond our imaginations. While that may be true for those bringing in the big bucks with blockbuster hits, plenty of respected and successful entertainers are living a much humbler existence. That brings us to Kelly Reichardt.

Her very first film (1994’s River of Grass) drew accolades from prestigious critics at the Boston Globe, New York Daily News, and Paper Magazine. In 2005, Reichardt made waves with her direction of Old Joy, an indie film that made its premiere at the 2006 Sundance Film Festival
