Wendy and Lucy

This little indie film was regarded as one of the best such films of its release year.  The movie is about a woman who seems down on her luck as she tries to cross the country to find a better life.  A lot of the reviews that I saw seemed to assume that she was in this position because of the economic downturn in our country.  To me that seems a bit presumptuous because she seems to make one bad choice after another.  Sure, she seems like a good person but…..   Anyway, although the last scene is tremendous I did not think it was anything special.
