November 30 – December 13
14-year-old Joe is the only child of Jeanette and Jerry—a housewife and a golf pro—in a small town in 1960s Montana. Nearby, an uncontrolled forest fire rages close to the Canadian border, and when Jerry loses his job—and his sense of purpose—he decides to join the cause of fighting the fire, leaving his wife and son to fend for themselves. Suddenly forced into the role of an adult, Joe witnesses his mother’s struggle as she tries to keep her head above water.

“It’s one worth making the trip to the theater for. Wildlife isn’t just a great first film, it’s a great film.” – Lindsey Bahr, Associated Press
“Carey Mulligan ignites a blaze in actor-turned-director Paul Dano’s moving familial melodrama about a 1960’s housewife and mother who can’t catch up with the feminist stirrings she feels inside. One word for Mulligan: Wow.” – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
“The whole of the film is a potent collaboration in every respect, and a remarkable directorial debut.” – Glenn Kenny, New York Times
