Wendy and Lucy

Wendy and Lucy ★★★★

really really loved this one! i’m gutted but i loved it!

the way reichardt made this was just so quiet and empathetic, despite it’s incredible hopelessness. we’re here, listening to wendy and all that she goes through for a couple days and then we leave her life, hoping the best for her despite the inevitable obstacles. she’s hopefully on her way to canada and we leave her to watch the credits roll. also, the way reichardt she uses the intersecting train tracks, as well as the trains themselves at the beginning and end to encapsulate the “passing by” essence of this film is way more impactful than it has any right to be. i’m so sad right now.
