Trailer Released For Jake Gyllenhaal and Carey Mulligan's 1960-Set Film WILDLIFE
This first trailer has been released for the upcoming 1960s-set film Wildlife, which stars Carey Mulligan and Jake Gyllenhaal as a husband and wife whose marriage is falling apart and a nearby forest fire rages. In the meantime, their teenage son is trying to keep the family together. It looks like a great, but heavy drama. And it looks like Mulligan and Gyllenhall are going to give incredible performances.
This is also the first film that actor Paul Dano has directed and he's received a lot of praise for his movie while making the rounds at the film festivals. Here’s the official synopsis for Wildlife:
Jeanette (Carey Mulligan of An Education) is a complex woman whose self-determination and self-involvement disrupts the values and expectations of a 1960s nuclear family. Fourteen-year-old Joe (Ed Oxenbould of The Visit), is the only child of Jeanette and Jerry (Jake Gyllenhaal)—a housewife and a golf pro—in a small town in 1960s Montana. Nearby, an uncontrolled forest fire rages close to the Canadian border, and when Jerry loses his job—and his sense of purpose—he decides to join the cause of fighting the fire, leaving his wife and son to fend for themselves. Suddenly forced into the role of an adult, Joe witnesses his mother’s struggle as she tries to keep her head above water.
Wildlife opens in theaters on October 19, 2018.
