Q&A with Paul Dano, Zoe Kazan, Carey Mulligan, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Bill Camp on September 30. Introduction by Dano, Kazan, and Mulligan on October 1, followed by Q&A with Dano and Mulligan.
In the impressive directorial debut from actor Paul Dano (There Will Be Blood), a carefully wrought adaptation of Richard Ford’s 1990 novel, a family comes apart one loosely stitched seam at a time. We are in the lonely expanses of the American west in the mid-’60s. 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. Co-written by Zoe Kazan, Wildlife is made with a sensitivity and at a level of craft that are increasingly rare in movies. An IFC Films release.
Wildlife opens on October 19, with sneak previews on Oct. 16 & 18. Paul Dano and Jake Gyllenhaal in person at select screenings. Get tickets.
