All the Wilderness (2014)
IMDb plot summary: A restless teenager explores the wilderness of his city while struggling with the absence of his father.
Directed by Michael Johnson. Starring Kodi Smit-McPhee, Virginia Madsen, Isabelle Fuhrman, and Danny DeVito.
Goodness gracious, who'd have thought an hour and 16 minutes could tick by SO SLOWLY? This is a dreary coming-of-age movie, the kind that features lots of montages of random nature images set to indie dance music where the characters have conversations about nothing and everything gets resolved in a dreamy voiceover monologue that only vaguely connects to the rest of the movie. All the actors seem to be sleepwalking their way through this, so I couldn't care less about any of their characters. It's a slog to sit through this one.
