"Harrelson makes the character his own, irresistibly." -A.A. Dowd, AV Club
"Wilson is an uncensored id. Clowes has created a monster, but a monster who refreshes our empathy for humans in all their unloveliness." -The Guardian
Written by and based on the graphic novel of the same name by author-artist Daniel Clowes ("Ghost World"), Craig Johnson's WILSON stars Woody Harrelson as a perpetually neurotic, brutally honest middle-aged man who discovers years after the fact that he's got a teen daughter he never knew about. With nothing much else going on in his life, Wilson joins forces with his estranged ex-wife (Laura Dern) to track said daughter down... which is easier said than done when you're something of a walking disaster.
WILSON premiered to enthusiastic reviews at the Sundance Film Festival, and finds Harrelson operating in peak “Woody Harrelson” mode. In addition to Harrelson and Dern, WILSON also features a slew of talented comedic actresses, including Judy Greer, Cheryl Hines, Mary Lynn Rajskub, Margot Martindale and Laura Weedman.
Is this the sleeper comedy hit of the year? With a cast and crew this talented, it's certainly got a shot... (Alamo Drafthouse)
