Wildlife Screening w/ Carey Mulligan Tribute
- Paul Dano
- United States 2018
- Gala Presentation, Tribute
British actress Carey Mulligan is one of the paramount talents of her generation. Nominated for an Oscar®, a Golden Globe, and a SAG award for her radiant lead role in An Education, Mulligan has delivered captivating performances in a range of plays and films, including Shame, The Great Gatsby, Inside Llewyn Davis, Mudbound, and this year’s
Festival centerpiece selection, Wildlife, in which she stars as a complex mother struggling to keep herself above water.
“it’s immediately clear [Director Paul Dano] is a natural-born filmmaker, with an eye for elegant spare compositions that refrain from being too showy; they rarely get in the way of the story he’s telling. The tale itself is resonant and absorbing, though in a highly deliberate way.” –Variety
Carey Mulligan delivers perhaps her finest performance as Jeanette, a complex woman whose reaction to husband Jerry’s (Jake Gyllenhaal) crisis of confidence disrupts the values and expectations of a 1960s nuclear family. Elegantly adapted from Richard Ford’s novel, Wildlife commits to the viewpoint of their teenage son observing the gradual dissolution of his parents’ marriage. With in-person tribute to Carey Mulligan.
