Wildling (wide release)
What's the story? A teenage girl's coming of age comes with a terrifying twist in this spellbinding take on the werewolf legend.

But when the teenage Anna is suddenly thrust into the real world under the protection of no-nonsense police officer Ellen (Liv Tyler), it soon becomes clear that the young woman is far from ordinary. Unable to adjust to a normal life, Anna finds herself drawn instead to the wild freedom of the forest while struggling to resist the growing bloodlust that has awakened inside her. This moodily atmospheric thriller combines supernatural scares with a myth-like tale of self discovery.

Among the formerly afflicted is Senan (Sam Keeley), a young man haunted by the horrific acts he committed while infected. Welcomed back into the family of his widowed sister-in-law (Ellen Page), Senan attempts to restart his life--but is society ready to forgive him and those like him?

When it turns out that Danny and Sandy's mismatched tales are about each other, Sandy is humiliated and Danny has to win her back.
