Dear Wendy

(Denmark/Germany/Great Britain/France, 2004, 105 minutes)

In a non-descript American mining town, a bunch of disenfranchised teenagers discover the power of firearms and form a secret society devoted to “pacifism with guns”. Provocative but flawed allegory of modern America whose ideas are stronger and more interesting than its realization.
