Synopsis

“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.
