A willfully spare, carefully observed film about sympathy and generosity at the dirty-fingernailed edges of American life, Wendy and Lucy feels like a folk song come to life.

... tender, tough and uncompromising, photographed with a disarming directness and seeming simplicity...

As in Old Joy, Wendy and Lucy's calculated understatement is at once instrumental to its bliss and damnation.

This transfer gets the job done beautifully, particularly in the shadowy depth of the film's nighttime scenes.
