Showcased at over 100 film festivals and winner of over two dozen, WILDLIKE is set in the breathtaking landscapes of Alaska, and tells the riveting story or a 14-year-old girl, Mackenzie (Ella Purnell), who holds the deep torments of sexual assault after she is left under the care of her uncle (Brian Geraghty) in Juneau. Mackenzie decides to run away and return to Seattle in search of her mother, but instead she finds Bart (Bruce Greenwood), a widowed backpacker preparing to hike across Denali. While Bart does not invite Mackenzie to tag along at first, her desperate persistence blooms into an unexpected, nurturing relationship of emotional recovery and trust as he is forced to grapple with her flight from her uncle, the threat of the law and her return to Seattle. This first feature written and directed by Frank Hall Green is a taut, restrained emotional journey in an astounding location. Running Time: 104 Minutes. Not Rated.
