In Paul Dano’s directorial debut, a teenage boy must deal with his mother's complicated response after his father temporarily abandons them to take a menial and dangerous job. Starring Jake Gyllenhaal & Carey Mulligan.

Pisgah Film Project note: You probably know director Paul Dano as the weasley preacher from There Will Be Blood or as the young Brian Wilson in Love and Mercy. But Wildlife shows his promise behind the camera, as Samuel Murrian from Parade calls it “an astonishingly beautiful first film.” And here’s to hoping that this film finally gives Carey Mulligan the credit she so deserves. David Edelstein of New York Magazine heralds the film as a “major moment” for her.
