Wendy and Lucy (2008)

Director: Kelly Reichardt. Cast: Michelle Williams, Lucy (the Dog), Wally Dalton, Will Patton. 80 min. Rated R. Drama.

The story of a girl who has only two things left in life: a car, and a dog - and how she starts to lose both. Wendy and Lucy's whopping 84% on the Tomatometer was what enticed me to watch this, and to the filmmakers' credit, the movie is at times superb at showing the girl's absolute loneliness. But occasionally, I was bored. The movie is a showcase for Williams' considerable acting skills, and her final decision about her two mere possessions at the end was thought-provoking; but if you want to be entertained, don't go here.
