THE WAIT navigates a range of emotions in telling the strange, irresistible story of the relationship between two women from different generations. Young and enchanting, Jeanne arrived with excitement before Giuseppe, whose continued delays and lack of presence cast a dark, mysterious shadow over the household. Why is Giuseppe not here and when will he appear? As Anna and Jeanne wait, they grow closer than either imagined they would, despite the secrets they’re harboring from one another.

“We watch Binoche’s face, in eloquent, mesmerizing close-up; pain and grief engulf her expression like water flooding into a still pool. She has few words. She doesn’t need them.”

“The lead actresses, like the story, work in subtle ways. There’s plenty of potency in small gestures, anecdotes and shared glances.”

When she starts acting distant after returning from a visit with her estranged and ill mother, he shows concern. Soon, their conversations lead to fights, the worst in their marriage. He learns that she can no longer imagine herself as a mother, leaving him confused and angry and their marriage in splinters. Before there can be resolution, Fiona dies in an auto accident after driving distractedly on the freeway. Sherwin is devastated. All that is dear to him, his wife, his sense of self and his future, vanish. In the middle of his grief, Sherwin receives a phone call from the person he least expects, Fiona’s mother. She invites him to visit her in rural Maine, saying: “It might do us both some good.” Sherwin decides to go to Maine, and embarks on an unlikely journey of healing, compassion and empathy.

A dachshund is taken in by a veterinary technician named Dawn Wiener (Greta Gerwig), who soon sets off on a road trip. The lovable dog also encounters a young boy, a film professor, and a troubled grandmother and granddaughter. The character of Dawn Wiener first appeared in the 1995 coming-of-age film Welcome to the Dollhouse, which was also written and directed by Todd Solondz. Wiener-Dog made its world premiere at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival.

“Bizarre and challenging when it’s not outright goofy, Wiener-Dog never feels remotely compromised.”

-Eric Kohn, indieWIRE

 

“With all its humor (and there is a ton), Wiener-Dog, following the journey of a dachshund as it is shuffled from owner to owner, is one of Solondz’s sharpest visions of futility.”

-Sheila O’Malley, RogerEbert.com
