The actor-turned-director undertaking is, as Eric Hynes wrote following last January’s premiere of Paul Dano’s Wildlife, a lodestone for attention and skepticism. Only once you observe the soulful direction of Dano’s feature film debut does that skepticism begin to not only dissipate, but eventually seem utterly senseless. With Wildlife, Dano enlists two of today’s most capable stars in Carey Mulligan and Jake Gyllenhaal—as well as newcomer Ex Oxenbould whose precocious talents recall the director’s own early performances—for a spirited and timeless drama tracking the dissolution of a family in 1960s Montana.
