Elia Kazan: The Actor’s Director

Wild River

Clift and Remick court and spark in Kazan’s affecting Depression-era tale of pride, prejudice and persuasion.

Image from Wild River

USA 1960
Dir Elia Kazan
With Montgomery Clift, Lee Remick, Jo Van Fleet, Jay C Flippen
Certificate PG

Following the catastrophic floods of 1933, the Tennessee Valley Authority sends an agent (Clift) to persuade a stubborn farmer (Van Fleet) to sell her island homestead and move to safety. When he asks her granddaughter (Remick) for help, things get unexpectedly complicated. One of Kazan’s more naturalistic films, Wild River is an affecting, psychologically astute study of conflicted characters, and a subtle examination of social responsibilities.
