WILDLIFE

NZ House & Garden - - NOTED -

At­trac­tive, un­ful­filled 1950s housewives hold a fas­ci­na­tion for film-mak­ers, and Carey Mul­li­gan’s turn as Jeanette in Wildlife has been par­tic­u­larly well re­ceived. Adapted from a novel by first-time direc­tor Paul Dano, this story cen­tres on a fam­ily deal­ing with un­em­ploy­ment, de­pres­sion and in­fi­delity and pre­sents it in a beau­ti­fully aus­tere way. Part of the New Zealand In­ter­na­tional Film Fes­ti­val, which starts in Auck­land on 19 July be­fore go­ing na­tion­wide; visit nz­iff.co.nz for more de­tails.
