Was that the end?
Loved the Alaska scenery! The cast was outstanding and did a great job. You feel the emotion of the entire movie. Beware of the ending bc it just makes you wanna curse!!
Tragic events in a young teenager’s life, overwhelming at any age, let alone fourteen (Dad’s death – Mom’s addiction – uncle’s violation), trigger her great escape into unfamiliar territory (Alaska) with no friends and nearly no funds. That girl, played by a slightly older Ella Purnell, pursues a mature yet gruff hiker (Greenwood) she thinks can guide her home (Seattle), what’s left of it, building a bond as they go, their small party intersecting with other humans who bear and share their own pain in recent loss.
Features in most top dramas going back to Silents, yet, you’ll find nary a moment of humor or charm in WildLike (carpet scene?). It’s just not that kind of flick. Instead, director Green takes you on a trip and keeps driving, giving you your full plate of grit, served cold, wet and finally warm, but without the violence and heaping-helpings-of-yelling that so often accompany such serious servings today. It’s an absorbing tale in every frame, eliciting the emotions makers seek in trepidation and acquired-trust from believable acts all, including Funk as the young hiker who’s nearly misled into an act he’ll long regret, and Geraghty as the bad uncle in the most detested yet bravest of movie portrayals. The camera is in the capable hands of Spera and always seems aimed in the right direction, whether at the strong facial expressions or majestic setting. The music, by team of Jurriaans & Bensi, carrys the whole thing well.
To the ending: Let me say first, surprise or shock is not always a good thing, Mr Hitchcock (Vertigo). An ending you might come to expect but a very tense, satisfying one, nonetheless. And then the lesson (yes, there’s a lesson): We need eachother. As families can fail and the system has its limitations, risking new contacts is essential. Wildlike reminds of The-Rockford-Files episode, A-Family-Affair (76), guest starring Burt Young, Ken Swofford, Paul Koslo and little Kim Richards as Marin (3.5/4).
