A sorry tale which is a bit too slow moving.

The pace of this film is slow and the lighting at times leaves entire scenes practically in the dark. That being said, this movie does successfully capture the desperation and utter loneliness of the main character. On one hand, the movie is the story of Wendy’s love for her only companion. On the other, it expresses the loss of community in today’s society.

This is an very good, independent film about how much, or more likely, how little, Americans will help one another. The last scene of Wendy alone captures the alienation and loneliness of America to-day.

This movie is not for everyone. It slow paced and has no explosions or special effects, but I loved it just the same. If you have ever had a close relationship with a dog, this movie will break your heart. The main character Wendy gets into a predicament due to bad luck and her own stupidity and tries to piece her plans back together. The movie includes Michelle Williams and Will Patton. By the end of this movie I was a little bit of a snotty mess, but I am a sucker for any story that includes a dog.

It moves a little slow compared to most current movies but tells, unfortunatley, a very real and all too familar story of modern day America.

Painful and shockingly dull. The capper was the same vague hummed tune you got to hear throughout the whole 90 minutes. It'll stick in your head for days. Sigh.

Skip this one if you have a short attention span. Check out Old Joy first if you haven't already seen it, unless you are homophobic in which case you have much bigger problems than deciding what movie to check out.

Good enough road story, Lucy is the dog. Too short. Very good acting from Lucy.
