Storyline

Plot Summary

Wildlife is a furious manifesto about fiction. Using an entirely new and original fictional text as a source for this polemic, the crutches of modern storytelling, production, writing, and directing are displayed and deconstructed to reveal why we watch what we do - romantic comedies, road trip films, teen horror genre films, premium television series, digital shorts, and even animated GIFs. Written by Jean-Paul Tremblay

Crazy Credits Nothing bad happened to any animals on set at any point. Did you not see all the dog and cat photos throughout the film? That's some serious pet love right there. Unrelatedly...

This motion picture is protected under the laws of the United States of America and other countries. Unauthorized duplication, distribution, or exhibition may result in civil liability and criminal prosecution. Hurray for Chris Dodd! Lobbying is so amazing, right? The characters and incidents portrayed are fictitious, and any similarity to the name, character, or history of any person living or dead is entirely coincidental and unintentional. Like, bear in mind the world's population is over 7 billion right now, so, there. See more »
