I don’t like slow movies, movies that aren’t funny, or, especially, movies about desperate poor women in which the desperate poor woman is played by a gorgeous Hollywood actress (Waitress, etc.) But after seeing the new trailer for Wendy And Lucy, starring Michelle Williams as a young woman who gets stranded on a journey to Alaska with her dog, I might be ready to change. I really want things to work out for her. And the dog:
The part where she cries doesn’t really do it for me, but the part where she’s setting out on her own into the wilderness does. I really really hope this is the one movie where the lost heroine on a journey doesn’t settle down with a nice young man at the end. Man, that would suck.
