Wendy and Lucy Reviews
In a minimalist film of muted emotions, Michelle Williams gives as lovely a performance as a moviegoer could ask for. It's a portrait of a life going grievously wrong, or one that's never been right.
Thanks to an extraordinary performance from Michelle Williams and an exceptionally deft hand from her director, this low-budget and loping little film is a genuine heartbreaker.
To her credit, Ms. Reichardt never allows her camera to become a voyeuristic witness to a young woman in distress. Instead, it remains focused on a largely indifferent American landscape of strangers in perpetual motion to nowhere.
