Montana Film Festival Roadshow in collaboration with IFC Films presents:


Directed by Paul Dano

Wildlife - Still 1


Set in Great Falls and filmed partially in Livingston, Montana Film Festival Roadshow is proud to present, in collaboration with IFC Films, WILDLIFE. Based on the novel by Richard Ford.

Fourteen-year-old Joe (Ed Oxenbould) is the only child of Jeanette (Carrie Mulligan) and Jerry (Jake Gyllenhaal) -- a housewife and a golf pro -- in a small town in 1960s Montana. Nearby, an uncontrolled forest fire rages close to the Canadian border, and when Jerry loses his job -- and his sense of purpose -- he decides to join the cause of fighting the fire, leaving his wife and son to fend for themselves. Suddenly forced into the role of an adult, Joe witnesses his mother's struggle as she tries to keep her head above water.
