DEAR WENDY is a story about the young loner Dick who lives in the poor mining town of Estherslope. When he happens upon a small handgun one day, he finds himself strangely drawn to it, despite his fervent pacifist views. Together with his newfound partner he soon convinces the other young outcasts in the town to join him in a secret club he calls The Dandies. A club based on the principals of pacifism and guns.

once in a life time, a movie comes along that makes you sob so unevenly that you have a slight attack of asthma. this movie is not one of them. however, this movie has so many high points that i completely glad i did not break down because otherwise i wouldn't have seen its amazing conclusion i loved its self contained setting, its amazing soundtrack (provided by The Zombies), and most of all its amazing philosophy. i, too, am a pacifist and now i, too, really want a gun. i think that i would buy a German war pistol and i would name it Edgar. This movie was a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-awesome! I seriously recommend taking a short amount of time out of your day to watch it.
