Have you ever lived with a writer? Maybe you are one or maybe you’ve found yourself in a novel with another name?
A young, aspiring writer returns home from college to face bittersweet truths in the new film by Turkish filmmaker and former Cannes Film Festival winner Nuri Bilge Ceylan. With poetic dialogue and artful cinematography this film sweeps in majestic strides. Steeped in an atmosphere of existentialist philosophy, much like Bilge Ceylan’s other features, The Wild Pear Tree has one of the most sublime portraits of weather to be seen in film since the Shakespearean landscape in Kurosawa’s Throne of Blood.
