The Wellington Film Society’s program continues – last week it was Le Quattro Volte and sticking with more modern films and return screenings of features that debuted in the big film festival we have Wild.
From the Film Society’s notes: A walk on the wild side in the most literal sense, Wild is a wayward, confrontational, anarchic, sexually outre modern fairy tale that balances on a razor-sharp edge between the genuinely provocative and the totally out-there. The third feature directed by German actress Nicolette Krebitz exhibits real nerve and rigorous control in equal measure as she tells a visceral tale of a young urban woman drawn to nature in a way that will shock mere tree-huggers. This will be beyond the pale for more sedate art house regulars but should develop a following among adventurous viewers hungry for the latest transgressions, especially in the realm of sexual politics.
This one is another co-screening between the Wellington Film Society and Goethe-Institut so be in quick for a good seat.
