This month’s film, Wendy and Lucy (2008) continues our Spring 2020 series “Living on the Edge: Themes of Poverty in Recent American Independent Film.” Superbly acted by Michelle Williams and featuring director Kelly Reichardt’s trademark minimalist style, the film focuses on the small but significant challenges that many people face every day in America – challenges that often lead to devastating choices.  Drama. 80 Minutes.
