Wendy and Lucy dir. Kelly Reichardt (2008)

Starring Michelle Wiliam Wendy and Lucy is the latest film from director Kelly Reichardt (Old Joy).

The third feature from director Kelly Reichardt is a hugely important one in the context of contemporary American Independent cinema. As is consistent with all of Reichardt's films,Wendy and Lucy explores the disconnection and alienation that people feel when living on the margins of society. Reichardt's character's exist outside of the boundaries of capitalist society: they don't have jobs, homes, or means of communication. As such Reichardt questions to what extent these characters exist at all in an unforgiving contemporary society.
