The Bozeman Film Society has rescheduled the November 14th screening of The Wife to Friday, November 23rd to participate in the Montana Film Festival Roadshow Tour of acclaimed new film, Wildlife.
Bozeman Film Society welcomes Missoula-based Montana Film Festival for the Roadshow Premiere of acclaimed new release Wildlife.
Elegantly adapted from Pulitzer Prize-winning author Richard Ford’s 1990 novel of the same name, Carey Mulligan (Mudbound, An Education) delivers one of her finest performances to date as Jeanette, a complex woman whose self-determination and self-involvement disrupts the values and expectations of a 1960’s nuclear family living in small-town Montana. When husband, Jerry, loses his job—and his sense of purpose—he decides to leave the family to fight fires on the Canadian border, forcing his wife and son to fend for themselves. Suddenly forced into the role of an adult, 14 year-old Joe witnesses his mother’s struggle as she tries to keep her head above water.
Set in Great Falls and shot partly in Livingston, Montana, Rolling Stonewrites: “Carrie Mulligan ignites a blaze in actor-turned-director Paul Dano’s moving familial melodrama about a 1960’s housewife and mother who can’t catch up with the feminist stirrings she feels inside. One word for Mulligan: Wow.”
An impressive directorial debut by actor-turned-director Paul Dano (There Will Be Blood, Love & Mercy), the film also stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Bill Camp and 14 year-old revelation, Ed Oxenbould. Rated PG13, the film runs 104 minutes. Keep ‘Em Flickering!
