Director Kelly Reichardt discusses her new movie Wendy And Lucy. The film features Michelle Williams as a young woman whose journey to Alaska is interrupted when her car breaks down in Oregon and her dog is taken to the pound. Michael Sragow of the Baltimore Sun described the film as the "best art-house girl-and-dog story you're ever going to see."

Reichardt's other films include Old Joy and Travis. She is a visiting assistant professor of film and electronic arts at Bard College.
