Wendy and Lucy
Directed by Kelly Reichardt/USA/2009
With Michelle Williams
Wendy Carroll is driving to Ketchikan, Alaska, in hopes of a summer of lucrative work at the Northwestern Fish cannery, and the start of a new life with her 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 Lucy. Wendy and Lucy 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 time.
“A PITCH PERFECT TRIUMPH!—Manohla Dargis, New York Times
“What may emerge as THE BEST PERFORMANCE of the YEAR!”—Film Comment
“What will happen to her? The strength of this short, simple, perfect story of a young woman and her dog is that this does not seem, by the end, to be an idle or trivial question. What happens to Wendy — and to Lucy — matters a lot, which is to say that Wendy and Lucy, for all its modesty, matters a lot too.”–A.O. Scott New York Times
