Indie Film Wendy and Lucy Starts Its American Tour Today in NYC

Wendy and Lucy, based on Jon Raymond's book Train Choir, stars Michelle Williams (Brokeback Mountain) as Wendy Carroll. The film takes us along with Wendy as she makes the trek, with her dog Lucy, up to Ketchikan, Alaska. There, she hopes of finding some summer work at the Northwestern Fish cannery, as well as a new life for Lucy and herself.
