Wendy and Lucy + intro with Kelly Reichardt
Michelle Williams is stunning as a young drifter who loses her beloved dog while on the road.
Dir Kelly Reichardt
With Michelle Williams, Walter Dalton, Will Oldham, John Robinson
The aspirations of a young drifter from Indiana (Williams) are thwarted when her car grinds to a halt in small-town Oregon and she loses her beloved dog Lucy (Reichardt’s own dog). This nuanced and profoundly moving study of breakdown and loss also riffs on the road-movie genre, and finely observes the economic fallout of corporate America. Michelle Williams is luminous in the first of three collaborations with Reichardt.
