Directed by Kelly Reichardt
2008, USA, 80 min

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 times.

Reviews

Wendy and Lucy is like Lassie Come Home directed by Antonioni. What’s piercing about it, and also disturbing, is that Reichardt views the renunciation of society with something close to righteous purity - as a lefty romantic dream.
– Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
Kelly Reichardt's Wendy and Lucy is another illustration of how absorbing a film can be when the plot doesn't stand between us and a character.
– Roger Ebert
