Wolf | Chicago Reader

Wolf

A middle-class couple discover that their teenage son has been sexually involved with their pastor. First-time writer-director Ya'ke Smith approaches the potentially lurid subject matter with restraint and sensitivity, and he demonstrates prodigious skill as a director of actors, giving even the walk-on players ample room to make the dialogue their own (the great Irma P. Hall, playing the abused boy's grandmother, has some typically show-stopping moments). Smith's dialogue, however, is often bogged down by cliches, and his metaphorical conceits can be heavy-handed and trite.
