Mar 06, 2009 · Wendy and Lucy is an important little film, a slice of life, that not enough people will see and that offers us a window on what more and more young people will be facing for some time to come. This film pleads with us not to close our eyes or turn our backs on them.
WENDY AND LUCY is a touching political road movie about an idealistic young drifter, her faithful dog and the wide-open spaces of the Pacific Northwest.
