Wendy and Lucy

Wendy and Lucy ★★★½

Crushing. That's about all I can say. Michelle Williams' restrained and nuanced performance of a woman teetering on the edge is fantastic. Kelly Reichardt's patient storytelling lets us really envelope ourselves into the story and into Wendy's life. Even if we've never been this far out on the edge, we've all had moments like this. But the beauty in the film is Wendy's love for Lucy. I won't spoil the end but it was both heartbreaking and lovely.
