Movie Info

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. (C) Screen Media

Critic Reviews for All The Wilderness

All Critics (25) | Top Critics (7)

Ultimately amounts to a visually ambitious tone poem about the none-too-surprising caprices of male adolescence.

February 20, 2015 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Affected and slow, and more concerned with mood than plot, this moony first feature from Michael Johnson uses its Portland, Ore., setting as a canvas for mapping a course from isolation to companionship.

February 19, 2015 | Full Review…

"All the Wilderness" seems tailor-made to play to the actor's strengths - Johnson's script is as lean as Smit-McPhee, both proving adept at doing more with less.

February 19, 2015 | Full Review…

A familiar but insightful debut.

February 19, 2015 | Rating: B | Full Review…

First-time writer/director Michael Johnson falls back on coming-of-age clichés. But overall, his sensitive, moody camerawork and the cast's strong performances go a long way toward making the familiar feel fresh.

February 19, 2015 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Johnson unquestionably has his heart in the right place, but he's made a commonplace film built around one of those too-fragile-for-this-world teens who can be traced directly back to Timothy Hutton in Ordinary People.
