Paul Dano, an actor best known for his roles in several key American independent films like Little Miss Sunshine and There Will Be Blood, makes his directorial debut with Wildlife. The film is a low-key stunner. Dano deftly captures the subtle currents and unspoken tensions that undercut a family living in a small town in Montana in 1960. From its lauded premiere at Sundance, on through Cannes, Toronto, and New York, Wildlife has received some of the best reviews of the year.
