Shy Virginian Lillian Gish travels West, where she’s taunted by a jealous woman, wooed by an insentient field hand, victimized by a lecherous rogue and tormented by the demonic tempest that relentlessly besieges her tiny cabin. Sjöström’s American masterpiece reaches the expressive heights of silent drama.

Reviews

“Demonstrates such imagination and assurance that it remains completely modern… its climactic sandstorm sequence has to be seen to be believed.”
– Geoff Andrew, Time Out

“No one would deny that THE WIND is a work of art or, after seeing it, cavil much at the opinion of a French critic, who said that Sjostrom was capable of making “the most beautiful films in the world.’”
– Derek Malcolm, The Guardian
