Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Wendy and Lucy is quiet, deliberate filmmaking. See it knowing you will witness an idiosyncratic take on storytelling by a fundamentally independent filmmaker.
Fresh: Williams and Patton and the folks of this corner of Oregon serve up a slice of "indie" that, if it doesn't reach the level of "inspires," at least feels timely and true.
Fresh: Deliberately paced -- slow, even -- it's nevertheless an amazing, timely parable for increasingly desperate times.
Rotten: The narrative has been pared to the bone, and that was a problem for me. We know nothing about Wendy, who she really is, why she left Indiana, what she hopes to do in Alaska -- apart from find a job.
Great Simple Film!
Sometimes the best movies are just simple gems with wonderful camera work and simple acting by actors just getting it right.
Very moving story, perfectly acted. A tragic tale of hope, love, helplessness, and ultimately sacrifice. I loved this one! Highly recommended but be warned, it's a bit of a tearjerker.
