Wildlife is a film set in Great Falls, Montana in the 1960s featuring Carrie Mulligan and Jake Gyllenhaal that was partially filmed in Livingston, which will be shown at the Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center as part of the Film Festival Roadshow.
Based on the novel by Richard Ford, Wildlife features a fourteen-year-old Joe (Ed Oxenbould) as 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.
