Kelly Reichardt
USA 2008
80 min

Kelly Reichardt's much-anticipated follow-up to her critically acclaimed 2006 fest circuit hit Old Joy continues to show Reichardt's remarkable gift for classically simple, deeply engaging storytelling. Wendy and Lucy is the story of Wendy, a down-on-her-luck girl who is hoping to turn things around for herself with a summer job at a fishing cannery in Alaska. Wendy is making the trek from Indiana to Alaska in her beat-up Honda, accompanied only by her dog, Lucy, and about 600 Dollar to make the entire trip. When her car breaks down in an Oregon small town, Wendy is forced to make a series of increasingly difficult choices, and to rely upon the kindness (or not) of strangers to resolve her plight. (...) Reichardt is a rarity, even among independent filmmakers; she excels at capturing these small, very human moments in the overall stories of her character's lives, bringing them to life with a restraint and beauty that many an A-list director could learn from.
