Storyline

Mackenzie, a troubled but daring teenage girl, is sent by her struggling mother to live with her uncle in Juneau, Alaska. Although Uncle seems like a supportive caretaker and friend, the relationship turns and Mackenzie is forced to run. Trying to make her way back to Seattle alone to find her absent mother, Mackenzie only winds up deeper in the Alaskan interior. Lost and with no one else to turn to, she shadows a loner backpacker, Bartlett, an unlikely father figure with scars of his own. Together, they cross the wilderness and discover sanctuary in the last frontier. Written by Anonymous

Powerful Film
16 November 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Saw this at Austin Film Festival. Wildlike tackles a very difficult topic with great sensitivity. Powerful filmmaking. Beautiful imagery. Concise, strong writing. Great acting.

Ella Purnell (MacKenzie) strikes a wonderful balance between troubled teen and innocent victim. I really appreciated the subtleties of her performance. But the character that brought humanity and hope to film was Rene Bartlett played by Bruce Greenwood. Greenwood creates a quiet, modern-day hero, not one with superpowers and a cape, but a common man guided by his principles and integrity.

In a wilderness as remote and vast as Alaska, Wildlike never gets lost.
