Synopsis:
Fourteen-year-old Joe (Ed Oxenbould) is the only child of Jeanette (Carey Mulligan) and Jerry (Jake Gyllenhaal) - a housewife and a golf pro - living a seemingly idyllic life in 1960's Montana. His family's carefully constructed façade is about to come crashing spectacularly down, however, when Jerry loses his job - and his sense of purpose. In an attempt to restore his pride, Jerry takes off for the summer to help fight the wildfires raging near the Canadian border, a life-threatening job, for very little pay. An angry and bereft Jeanette must quickly learn to fend for herself, and does so with gusty, challenging cultural expectations and taking a quietly bewildered Joe along for the ride.

Slice of Life - Wildlife review by JP

The acting makes this film.... a simple story of a family that has moved to Montana after many other moves. The mother seems a good one at the start, but life events change her life and perspective. It's really the son's story and how he views the family's life and transitions. One moral of the story - don't marry too young!

Well acted story - Wildlife review by TE

Excellent acting by everyone concerned, with special credit to the young Ed Oxenbould.

The film would benefit from a little more back-story to help explain why the mother goes so completely crazy when the father heads off to the burning woods.

Their son is the camera through which we see events unfold, and there is a poignant punch in the final scene in the photographer's studio.

A People Film - Wildlife review by IG

A well put together film with strong acting, delivers a far more interesting story than the synopsis suggests.
