Storyline

Mackenzie, a troubled but daring teenage girl, is sent by her struggling mother to live with her uncle in Juneau, Alaska. Although Uncle seems like a supportive caretaker and friend, the relationship turns and Mackenzie is forced to run. Trying to make her way back to Seattle alone to find her absent mother, Mackenzie only winds up deeper in the Alaskan interior. Lost and with no one else to turn to, she shadows a loner backpacker, Bartlett, an unlikely father figure with scars of his own. Together, they cross the wilderness and discover sanctuary in the last frontier. Written by Anonymous

Quotes

Bartlett: We eat a hundred yards from the tent. We don't make fires, I cook on the stove, and there are no marshmallows. Don't spill food on youself, don't break any branches, don't step on any flowers. Just leave everything the way you found it. This is bear spray. Hold on to it. Never approach and bear, or a moose, or whatever. Don't approach them. If a bear charges you then...
Mackenzie: I know what I'm doing.
Bartlett: You have no idea. But whatever you do, don't run. - Do not run. - Don't run.
Mackenzie: "Don't run." got it.

16 March 2015 | by elevator442See all my reviews

I liked the film- thoughtful, visually engrossing, and deft in the complicated unraveling of the protagonist's story with a sensitivity that conveys a genuine understanding of humanity's harsher realities. Greenwood and Purnell delivered in what I'd have to call the redemption of all things good in humanity in an environment that doesn't nurture such things. Inspiring. Good storytelling here is the reason. Dealing with subject matter as potentially volatile and devastating as this can be without losing sight of the story is a very good summation of Frank Hall Green's skill as a filmmaker. I wouldn't be surprised if WILDLIKE became something of a benchmark film for a number of organizations who provide services and support for victims. This isn't a story of victimization however- it's the story of resilience and how even the simplest of gestures can result in profound hope and recovery. Highly recommend!
