Beautiful film, touching story, incredible acting
I cried during this more than I’ve cried during a movie in a long time. And I cry a lot during movies. Honestly, even watching the trailer again just now I cried. This film is about a kid who’s having a rough time and goes to live with his estranged father who monitors wolf packs in Wyoming, and then finds himself while learning about and tracking these wolves. Not only is this film totally beautiful to watch because of the landscape and wildlife, but it’s also an intensely heartfelt and touching story. I think there’s just something about seeing someone who is hurting so much and having such a hard time with life find something that fills their heart and brings them a sense of purpose. Spencer, the lead actor, was AMAZING and gave an absolutely masterful performance in this film. Watch out for him. I can’t believe he’s not being cast in every movie right now. If this doesn’t get a theatrical release, I’m going to lose all faith in the film industry.
Subtle but powerful life lessons told in a beautiful way
I don’t feel it’s necessary to describe the film’s wonderful cinematography or its other lush, wonderful elements; others have done a good job; don’t miss their reviews. Rather, I want to single out what I wish many people could observe-the process whereby people change, and how it was skillfully portrayed in this film. One reviewer was very cynical, and couldn’t believe that “kids are all sweet and easily trained to the way we want them to be…” Yes, probably Owen deserved to be thrown in juvy or jail for his crime, but was he going to find redemption from that scenario? No, we know the trajectory of that route. Rather, the writer wants us to see how the preferred end is real change and true success in life, and how that fragile process happens. We see how Owen’s “relative” seems to know not to say much; He’s a quiet man, with his own past wounds (and reason for abandoning Owen), and has just a few choice words that sink in, said at the right time. And yes, we learn, again, that nature is a powerful healing force (read: God working incognito), and that more kids should be introduced to it as early as possible. I’d rather see a kid come to real repentance (which he finally does; he recognizes that he wronged his friend), based on the effect of grace and mercy rather than for “justice” to be meted out. And his newly found father handles his confession with a few simple words that change his reason for self-hatred. What you see is the effect of authentic communications between strangers, rather than a lot of talking and parrying; their relationship slowly but surely unfolds-helping both the son accept the father and the father accept the son– based on the father not putting anything on the son and letting him find his own way as he provides a mechanism by which the son can find himself. This is the wonder of the storyteller, the director, and all involved in being able to put this together, in a beautiful way, for us all to enjoy, while we “learn” important lessons.
