Wildlike (2014) | 100 Day Film Challenge – Day 16

Wildlike is directed by Frank Hall Green and stars Ella Purnell and Bruce Greenwood. It revolves around Mackenzie (Purnell), a young woman who is sent to live with her uncle in Juneau, Alaska. After he sexually assaults her, she runs away and head back to her hometown of Seattle. Along the way, she meets a widower named Rene Bartlett (Greenwood). During the journey, they both help each other heal.

This is a typical “finding yourself” film. The acting is decent and there’s some good cinematography, but there is nothing particularly special about this film. If you enjoy this type of movie, give Wildlike a watch.

Verdict: 3/5

Wildlike is streaming on US Netflix

    1. I’m not a professional film critic, and I enjoyed your film. It just wasn’t personally memorable to me. A 3/5 is a decent score, and you should be more accepting of constructive criticism. I felt like some elements of the film (such as her sexual assault) should have been more fleshed out. Not everyone will love everything you create.

  1. I guess some might say “special” is the 185 film festivals that Wildlike was at and the 90+ awards, (For script, directing, cinematography, acting, music – 55 of them Best Film awards) that it won. But other than that, yeah, nothing special.


  2. You know what? You’re right. Thank you for your opinion and review, Alyssa, and, more importantly, for helping me to accept constructive criticism! I apologize. #toosensitive 🙂 FHG
