Wildlife 2018
"I feel like I need to wake up. But I don't know what from, or to," mother tells her bewildered son in this drama about family, masculinity and female agency in 1960s America topped by a trio of towering performances.. This strikingly styled film marks the directorial debut of actor Paul Dano, who also co-writes the script with his partner Zoe Kazan.

Based on the novel by Richard Ford "Wildlife" stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Carey Mulligan as Jerry and Jeanette Brinson, who’ve recently moved to small-town Montana with their teen son Joe (Ed Oxenbould). The American Dream is proving elusive for the middle-class family, in fact they’re flirting with poverty. Tough times fracture the bond between man and wife, and the chasm widens when Jerry suddenly announces he’ll be away for months because he’s taking a low-paying, dangerous job fighting fires.
