Wildlife

Critic's Pick at The New York Times

In first-time director Paul Dano’s impressive debut, a carefully wrought adaptation of Richard Ford’s 1990 novel (co-written by Zoe Kazan), a family comes apart one loosely stitched seam at a time. Jake Gyllenhaal and Carey Mulligan star as the parents; Ed Oxenbould is the adolescent son trying to hold the center.
