Join us for a very special conversation with filmmaker Paul Dano and novelist Richard Ford about Wildlife, opening at the Film Society of Lincoln Center on October 19 from IFC Films. Adapted from Ford’s novel by Dano and Zoe Kazan, Wildlife portrays a beleaguered family in the American West of the mid-1960s, with a finely honed sensitivity and meticulous filmmaking craft. “An affable man (Jake Gyllenhaal), down on his luck, runs off to fight the wildfires raging in the mountains. His wife (Carey Mulligan) strikes out blindly in search of security and finds herself running amok. It is left to their young adolescent son Joe (Ed Oxenbould) to hold the center.”—NYFF56

Wildlife opens on October 19, with sneak previews on Oct. 16 & 18. Paul Dano, Zoe Kazan, and Jake Gyllenhaal in person at select screenings. Get tickets.
