Wendy and Lucy

Wed 8 Feb 2017

Wendy is driving with her dog Lucy to Alaska, in the hope of a summer of lucrative work at the fish cannery.

When her car breaks down in Oregon, and the thin fabric of her financial situation comes apart, Wendy finds herself on the very periphery of American society but remains stoic in her determination for a better life.

Wendy & Lucy is a finely crafted, and carefully composed picture of life in the margins of society, with a brilliant and sympathetic performance from Michelle Williams.
