Brit Marling and Hailee Steinfeld play sisters defending their isolated farm in Daniel Barber’s slow-building feminist Western. Set in 1865, The Keeping Room lyrically portrays the daily trials endured by its hardscrabble heroines. But after a pair of drunken soldiers (Kyle Soller and Sam Worthington) come huffing and puffing at their door, it more or less gives up and becomes a pretty average siege thriller. I’m positive there’s an audience for an Old West tale about fierce, independent women. I’m equally positive it can be done better. C+
