Critic Consensus: Wildlife's portrait of a family in crisis is beautifully composed by director Paul Dano -- and brought brilliantly to life by a career-best performance from Carey Mulligan.

Critic Reviews for Wildlife
Working from a screenplay he wrote with partner Zoe Kazan, Dano shows not just a keen way with actors but also an alert eye for deceptively charged visuals that combine surface beauty and nagging emptiness.
Carrie Mulligan ignites a blaze in actor-turned-director Paul Dano's moving familial melodrama about a 1960's housewife and mother who can't catch up with the feminist stirrings she feels inside. One word for Mulligan: Wow.
It's one worth making the trip to the theater for. Wildlife isn't just a great first film, it's a great film.
Hardly a single moment over the runtime demonstrates a forceful, vigorous, or urgent vision.
