It's all terribly cliché-ridden and predictable, and the best I can say for it is that Shannon and Gugino do their best to convince us otherwise.
Freundlich clearly likes to dig in deep with this kind of character material, and here it pays off in ways it really hasn't in some of his previous feature work.
A curious if unsuccessful cross-breeding of gritty domestic drama with conventional coming-of-age sports crowd-rouser.
A modestly pleasing, unsurprising indie about a family undone by anger issues.
It's as if Bart Freundlich, who wrote and directed, loses confidence in the performances and decides he'd better throw in every cliché in the genre.
Wolves blends in with the pack.
Featuring a breakout performance by Taylor John Smith...
On the basketball court, this gritty drama has some scoring ability. But off the court, it's an unconvincing mess of clichés.
It's Shannon who lights up the screen, and without him it's hard to imagine this effort would be worth talking about.
The overly-contrived basketball game finale is classic Freundlich (which is to say eye-rolling), but there are times even he, not just his excellent actors, gets things right.
While 'Wolves' boasts exciting basketball scenes plus excellent performances, it's also too predictable and contains a very strange ending.
Bart Freundlich alternates somewhat arbitrarily between his various plots, leaving a lot of loose ends in the process.
