35mm presentation - Michelle Williams (Brokeback Mountain) gives a powerful breakout performance in this feminine variation on Into the Wild. Wendy Carroll (Williams) is driving to Alaska, hoping for a summer of lucrative work at the Northwestern Fish cannery, and the start of a new life with her beloved dog, Lucy. When her car breaks down in Oregon, however, the thin fabric of her financial situation comes apart, and she confronts a series of increasingly dire economic decisions, with far-ranging repercussions for herself and her dog. Wendy and Lucy is a poetic road drama that addresses issues of sympathy and generosity at the edges of American life, revealing the limits and depths of people's duty to each other in tough times. Co-starring Walter Dalton, Larry Fessenden and Will Patton. Directed and co-written by Kelly Reichardt (Old Joy).
