Kodi Smit-McPhee Is All Grown Up Full Of Angst In All The Wilderness Trailer

No comments: Links to this post
It's been a long time since we first met Kodi Smit-McPhee and since The Road and Let Me In he's done a lot of growing up and in his latest film he's once again unleashing his teen angst, watch the official  trailer for All The Wilderness.

In The Road as The Boy his childhood was stolen from him thanks to an apocalyptic event, In Let Me In bullying destroyed him and in All The Wilderness he's a young man struggling to cope with the death of his father. He attends counselling meeting a psychiatrist (Danny Devito) who through his visit meets Val (Isabelle Fuhrman) another patient who introduces him to a whole new world that changes his life.

On paper this looks like it maybe another generic coming of age story but reading reviews from it's festivl runs it looks like its better executed than other entries. The film also further shows the talent that Smit-McPhee is becoming too, Beautifully shot and with a film soundtrack  which has the likes of Sigur Ros on it should see this film get some form of release in UK&Ireland.

All The Wilderness is due for a limited/VOD Release in USA on 20th February co-starring Virigina Marsden and Evan Moss.

Synopsis
James (Kodi-Smit-McPhee) has shut himself off from his surroundings, falling into a world of imagination and darkness. Visits with his psychiatrist (Danny Devito) have proven unhelpful – though he takes a liking to fellow patient, Val (Isabelle Fuhrman). As James begins to rebel against his single mother (Virginia Madsen), he ventures into the night where he meets a mysterious kid (Evan Ross) who welcomes him into an eccentric city. Relationships are put to the test as James navigates unfamiliar territory, wrestling with the reality of his own personal wilderness.
