Wendy and Lucy

Wendy and Lucy ★★★½

Kelly Reichardts intimate story about a young woman trying to get to Alaska in pursuit of employment and her dog, is strangely compelling. Reichardt puts together a low key movie where nothing much happens, yet it is highly dramatical. The characters are authentic and you actually care what happens to them. Michelle Williams rose on my scale of respect after this role and I can see why Ruben Östlund is having meetings with her about his next film The Square.
