[young female librarian Alice White transforms into a wolf within the span of five seconds]
A disturbed young woman has trouble convincing her lover that she's a wolf, and her psychiatrist is sure he's discovered a new complex that will make his name. She moves to a retreat in Scotland, where she morphs permanently into a wolf.
Wilderness is an unusually intelligent "werewolf" drama. Unusual in that the transformation scenes are gentle and quick, with none of the usual gore - just simple morphing into a real wolf which shows the gentle nature of its human form - "Alice", a lonely librarian. The drama is more about loneliness than anything else, and Amanda Ooms very effectively expresses the isolation that her condition brings, and her longing for love and a "normal" human life. Not that there isn't any action - there certainly is, but it's not overdone. Another bonus is that the film gives the viewer a good feel for how the wolf Alice feels as she hunts through the woods - and city streets - at night. The realism is heightened by the fact that only one person believes Alice's story - even her lover just can't accept it. Clever, exciting, and ultimately very moving, with no sugary happy ending to spoil it.
Mild-mannered librarian Alice White (Amanda Ooms) has a secret: Once a month, she turns into a wolf. When White tries to convince her psychiatrist (Michael Kitchen) that she's a werewolf, he doesn't believe her. Neither does her lover (Owen Teale) -- until she proves them both wrong in spectacular fashion in this made-for-TV movie. Bonus features include an article about the difficulties of working with a real timber wolf for the project.
