Wendy is a passion project for Benh Zeitlin, the director who shook Sundance and then the rest of the world with Beasts of the Southern Wild almost a decade ago. The classic story of Peter Pan is wildly reimagined in this ragtag epic. Lost on a mysterious island where aging and time have come unglued, Wendy must fight to save her family, her freedom, and the joyous spirit of youth from the deadly peril of growing up. This is a colorful, energetic joyride, shot by Norwegian master cinematographer Sturla Brandth Grøvlen, full of spectacle and wonder. Wendy also makes an important point about children’s connection to nature. It is fading.
