Wendy and Lucy

Wendy and Lucy

Wendy is trying her very best to stay afloat on the absolute margins of the economy while also caring for her dog, Lucy, whom she loves with all her heart. In a year when glitzy rags-to-riches fable Slumdog Millionaire cleaned up the Oscars in the aftermath of yet another capitalism-off-the-rails financial crash, Kelly Reichardt's third feature film was a quiet, little-seen, devastating act of artistic conscience. Would make a bizarrely good double feature with Soderbergh's The Girlfriend Experience.
