Desperate Times: An Interview with 'Wendy and Lucy' Director Kelly Reichardtnew

The accident of timing has everything to do with how a movie is received, and there's no question Kelly Reichardt's Wendy and Lucy hits home more forcefully now than when it premiered last May.

But so far, I haven't seen a film that truly dazzled me.
