Wendy and Lucy
Dir. Kelly Reichardt US 2008
Kelly Reichardt’s (Old Joy) acutely observed Wendy and Lucy stars Michelle Williams (Brokeback Mountain) as Wendy, a down but not out drifter who makes an unfortunate pit stop in Oregon on her way to a fishing gig in Alaska. Arrested for shoplifting a can of dog food, Wendy is separated from her beloved pooch, Lucy, yet manages to find uneasy salvation in the kind gestures of strangers. Working with Old Joy co-writer Jonathan Raymond and cinematographer Sam Levy, Reichardt has crafted a quiet masterpiece that may be called the most prescient testament to the recession state of things in America in 2009. Peter Travers in Rolling Stone raves, “Reichardt is a true cinema poet who works miracles in miniature, find(ing) a perfect collaborator in Williams, an actress of grit and amazing grace.” (80m)
