Critic Consensus: Wildlife's portrait of a family in crisis is beautifully composed by director Paul Dano -- and brought brilliantly to life by a career-best performance from Carey Mulligan.

Critic Reviews for Wildlife
Dano doesn't appear in his own movie, but its texture is of a piece with his courteous and careful performances, where he always seems to plead fruitlessly with an unjust world.
It's beautifully designed and well-acted, and Mulligan's tense work as a mother who sometimes seems to be the stronger parent and sometimes the more dangerous one is exquisite.
An accomplished, moving piece of filmmaking, one that cares about its characters and trusts its performers.
Dano aces the formal requirements that make a good film. But there's so much that is great in this debut, and not enough that feels original.
