"Wildlife" is a contrarian indie comedy attacking unoriginality: predictable Hollywood story lines, familiar characters, and directorial clichés.
At first glance, “Wildlife” seems to be about Gary, a copyright lawyer going through a divorce who brings his friends and his sons to his family's lake house to burn it down before he loses it to his ex-wife. OH BUT WAIT, THERE'S ALSO A MASSIVE DOSE OF MINDBLOWING, STUPENDOUSLY FRESH ORIGINALITY! All those well-worn tropes of modern cinematic storytelling above? We’ve subverted them by crafting a small micro budget movie about big studio storytelling. Indie actors, indie production values, and constant reminders of audience expectations around big budgets and big actors.
