Explain the ending of the movie wakefield
Friday Brown by Vikki WakefieldI am Friday Brown. I buried my mother. My grandfather buried a swimming pool. A boy who can’t speak has adopted me. A girl kissed me. I broke and entered. Now I’m fantasizing about a guy who’s a victim of crime and I am the criminal. I’m going nowhere and every minute I’m not moving, I’m being tail-gated by a curse that may or may not be real. They call me Friday. It has been foretold that on a Saturday I will drown…
Friday, 17, flees memories of her mother, granddad, and the family curse. She joins Silence in a street gang led by beautiful charismatic Arden, and escapes to a ghost town in the outback. In Murungal Creek, the town of never leaving, Friday faces the ghosts of her past. Sometimes you have to stay to finish what you started, and before you can find out who you are, you have to become someone you never meant to be.
‘Wakefield’ Review: Bryan Cranston Shines as Man Who Blows Up His Life
Read Peter Travers' review. But the daring of writer-director Robin Swicord is all over Wakefield. Based on a short story by E. Doctorow and before that, an tale from none other than Nathaniel Hawthorne , the film gets whisper-close to Howard Wakefield Bryan Cranston , a New York lawyer who turns his life upside down. None of the above.
Bryan Cranston in Wakefield. From a short story by E. Doctorow, the writer-director Robin Swicord, who adapted the screenplays for The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Memoirs of a Geisha, among others, has constructed an inspired and compelling film about one man with the courage and daring to walk away from the boring routine of daily life and observe it from a distance, putting into motion what everyone else thinks about but never has the guts to do. Wakefield is a terrific movie, with a devastatingly bravura performance by Bryan Cranston that seizes and grips attention from first scene to last. In one of the most challenging roles of his career, he plays a New York lawyer who has grown weary of the daily commute to his swanky home in the suburbs and of the ritual of domestic drudgery in a year marriage that has grown stale from familiarity. He has money, an elegant tailored wardrobe, a beautiful wife Jennifer Garner , two children, a respected career, and everything else shared by well-heeled commuters smart and successful enough to escape the horrors of the big city to find bliss where green things grow.
Adapted from an E. Popular on Variety. When his wife Diana Garner calls, he lets it go to voicemail, preferring to brood in silence. How many times has Wakefield repeated this routine, soldiering off to work in the morning, then returning home to his suffocatingly perfect life? Can a man like Wakefield, who refuses to accept love, preferring to fester in feelings of resentment and persecution, ever be happy? Back on the train, an electrical outage forces the passengers to make their way home on foot, but instead of rushing inside to greet his worried wife when he arrives, Wakefield is distracted by a wild raccoon scavenging at the end of his driveway. When the creature attempts to take refuge in the attic apartment above his garage, Wakefield follows, catching a glimpse of his family from the upstairs window.
It is based on the short story of same name by E.

Howard Wakefield Bryan Cranston trudges home to the New York City suburbs on a commuter train, returning from some unsatisfying but well-paying lawyer job to his younger, beautiful wife Diana Jennifer Garner , their two children, and their sumptuous home, which has a separate garage you could practically live in. Based on the short story by E. Doctorow, and written and directed by Robin Swicord a longtime Hollywood screenwriter whose only other directorial credit was The Jane Austen Book Club in , Wakefield is a much odder film than it initially seems. The simple premise: Rather than return home after another day at work, Howard moves into the unfurnished attic of his family garage and hides out, spying on his wife and seeing what her reaction is to his disappearance. But then the film just keeps going and going it feels fairly long at an hour and 45 minutes. But none of this material is interesting, or deeply explored, enough to sustain the narrative on its own.
