Directed By: Leslye Headland

Synopsis: A good-natured womanizer and a serial cheater form a platonic relationship that helps reform them in ways, while a mutual attraction sets in.

Our Two Cents:  A rom-com with a dash of misogyny.

Caught between the advance of civilization from the south and the nomads’ traditional enemies – the marauding wolves – to the north; humans and animals, residents and invaders alike, struggle to find their true place in the world.

Our Two Cents: Magnificent natural vistas, the film boils down to a familiar environmentalist stand point.
