quietearth [Celluloid 10.24.08] movie news drama

While I've had some misgivings having only read a synopsis, I've still been following this little pic for a while. Any uncertainty I had was completely removed after watching the trailer I somehow missed, but luckily our friend Marina over at Row Three didn't. It premiered at Sundance, and lucky us, it will be getting a limited theatrical release in the US on December 10th.

"Wendy Carroll (Michelle Williams) is driving to Ketchikan, Alaska, in hopes of a summer of lucrative work at the Northwestern Fish cannery, and the start of a new life with her dog, Lucy. When her car breaks down in Oregon, however, the thin fabric of her financial situation comes apart, and she confronts a series of increasingly dire economic decisions, with far-ranging repercussions for herself and Lucy. "Wendy and Lucy" addresses issues of sympathy and generosity at the edges of American life, revealing the limits and depths of people's duty to each other in tough times."

It has that personal photographic style I love in indie films and it looks like a piece of growing desperation. Trailer after the break.
