All the Wilderness is caught somewhere between a terrific short film and a tender, sensitive coming-of-age drama. Without credits, Michael Johnson’s film is 71 minutes long, which is too brief to fully explore the pain and pleasures experienced by young protagonist James Charm (Kodi Smit-McPhee). Meanwhile, given how the stakes are low and the themes repeat throughout, a 30-minute version of the same material could have been more focused and affecting. Alas, the film must cope with a slender running time.
Although his surname is Charm, James is anything but charming. Obsessed with the macabre, he draws sketches of dead birds and insects in his notebook, and also tells the school bully he expects him to die within the next year. (That altercation gives James a black eye.) Mom Abigail (Virginia Madsen) doesn’t know how to deal with her son’s morbidity, especially after the death of her husband. »

Evan Ross and Ashlee Simpson Ross are both creative people—but they're fine with being not quite as creative as some when it comes to naming children. "We got a few ideas but we're keeping that for us," Evan said on The Wendy Williams Show Thursday when asked if he and Ashlee had any names in mind already for the daughter they're expecting together this year. "It's not going to be Apple or Orange or anything like that," he added. "It's going to be different though." Touché! E! News was first to report in December that the couple were expecting. Their baby girl will join big half-brother Bronx, Ashlee's 6-year-old son with ex Pete »
Title: All the Wilderness Director: Michael Johnson Starring: Kodi Smit-McPhee, Virginia Madsen, Evan Ross, Isabelle Fuhrman and Danny DeVito While looming death may offer feelings of solace and redemption for those struggling with the mounting pressures in their lives, the harrowing effects their passing leaves on their loved ones may cause even more distressing problems than it solves.

Wild at Heart: Johnson’s Solipsistic, Sincere Coming-of-Age Drama
Initially titled The Wilderness of James when it premiered at the 2014 SXSW Film Festival, Michael Johnson’s directorial debut has been re-titled All the Wilderness, perhaps in an effort to extend its poetic fascination with death into a more universal realm. But the wilderness is a place “where all things go to live…and to die,” our protagonist narrates to us, quoting wisdom from his deceased father, who instilled in his son that ‘each man’s wilderness is his own,’ before he committed suicide in front of his kid. Johnson’s narrative remains a very singular narrative about how tragedy has irreparably tainted one particular adolescent’s coming-of-age tale, which is, for all intents and purposes, otherwise quite uneventful. But Johnson relates how a father’s actions have created toxic ripples within his son’s life. Though performances and tech »

There has already been plenty of controversy over Lionsgate's decision to split the final The Hunger Games novel by Suzanne Collins into a two-part movie finale, with The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 set to hit theater this November, following last year's The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1.
