Beguilingly nostalgic in its simplicity and hushed colour palette, the camera maintains a steady gaze on its subjects, often trained on lingering close-ups. It only enhances Wildlife’s compassionate storytelling, and lends the film a wistful atmosphere.

The jokes fly thick and fast, from those at the expense of rival movies to those about studios Fox and Marvel, along with a healthy dose of self-deprecation.
