Wildlike

Join Indievents, and Club David Sunday, September 27th , for the South Dakota Premiere of Wildlike.

Wildlike is a new independent coming of age ADVENTURE film. Wildlike has been a huge hit at film festivals this year playing at over 150 film festivals and winning over 30 best film awards.

In this thrilling coming-of-age adventure, a troubled teen must face the dangers of the Alaskan wild, as well as her own past, in order to find her way home. Sent to stay with her uncle in Alaska while her mother is in treatment, 14-year-old Mackenzie (Ella Purnell) is forced to flee as her uncle's attention turns threatening. Unable to reach her mother and afraid that the authorities will return her to her uncle, she embarks on a journey across miles of wilderness to find a way back home to Seattle. As she plunges deeper into the Alaskan interior, a chance connection with gruff backpacker Bartlett (Bruce Greenwood) proves to be her only lifeline. Mackenzie shadows Bartlett across the rugged frontier, thwarting his efforts to cut her loose until he has no choice but to help her survive, and against the backdrop of a spectacular landscape, they discover the redemptive power of friendship.

"A genre-defying film with an unmistakable indie spirit, Frank Hall Green's directorial debut, Wildlike, is a wonderful viewing experience that is both breathtaking to look at and refreshingly optimistic. Much like one of its central characters, the film seeks to quietly meditate on grief and explores whether it is right to accept tragedy and move on or defiantly hold on tight." - American Literary Magazine

"(Frank Hall Green) show(s) a restraint and a confidence that would seem to derive from knowing he's got all the right pieces to put together something special and letting a compelling drama emerge naturally from them." - The Moveable Fest - Stephen Saito

"Wildlike is a movie about survival on a very core level with a masterful delivery of solid, well-researched characters. In a display of impressive prowess by screenwriter Frank Hall Green, his directorial debut, Wildlike, grapples demons and deliverance against the backdrop of Alaska's immense wilderness with great agility." - Anchorage Press

"A restrained perspective on some potentially volatile subject matter and a couple of nuanced performances could help the film gain traction with sympathetic audiences and outdoor enthusiasts alike." - The Hollywood Reporter
