WILDLIFE is an intimate, painful portrait of a young man watching the emotional destruction of the marriage of his father and mother. Remarkable performances by Jake Gyllenhaal and Carey Mulligan, the parents, and Ed Oxenbould, as their teenage son, Paul Dano beautifully weaves a loving, yet emotionally painful, of a family in crisis, similar in many ways to Dano's own experiences growing up, this brilliant directorial debut looks into family failure with a spark of redemption through the eyes of a young man's coming-of-age experiences.
