Drama starring Jamie Bell as Dick, a loner living in a poor US mining town who happens upon a small antique handgun, and finds himself strangely drawn to it. He convinces other young outcasts to join him in a secret club he calls 'The Dandies'. It's a club based on the conflicting ideals of pacifism and guns; with the most important rule: 'never draw your weapon'. But they soon find themselves in a predicament where they realise that rules are made to be broken.

Dick then falls in love with his gun, names it 'Wendy', and forms a gang named 'The Dandies', which is comprised of other gun lovers, all of which are pacifists who love to study and appreciate guns, though are not interested in their use as actual weapons and are honour bound as gang members never to use their guns to commit violent acts against others. As the story progresses 'The Dandies' soon realise that some of the rules of the group have to be broken.
Written by Lars Von Trier, 'Dear Wendy' is a film presented in a very unique and quirky way. The young cast is great and not typical of the usual teenage casting of good looks and white teeth, and Jamie Bell is proving to be an exceptional young actor. If you like quirky films then this is definitely worth a look.
The film focuses on a simple and very deceptive love affair between a social misfit Dicky (played by Billy Elliot's Jamie Bell), and Wendy of the title. However, Wendy is not the girl of his dreams, she is in fact the gun of his dreams. Dicky lives in a small American town called Electric Park, and is determined not to follow in his fathers footsteps and end up working down the local mine. After securing a job at a local store, Dicky comes across what he thinks is a toy gun in a local store, run by the equally awkward Susan (Alison Pill), and buys the gun as a present for someone he doesn't really like, but winds up giving them something else instead, and keeps the gun. It is only when fellow convenience store worker Stevie (Mark Webber) catches sight of the gun that he identifies and reveals to Dicky that it is a working gun, and he to possesses a gun. The two of them strike up an unlikely friendship, and soon establish a club for their fellow misfits Susan, and two brothers Freddie (Michael Angarano) and Huey (Chris Owen). Calling themselves the Dandies, all of them obtain guns of one sort or another, and begin practising with them, establishing rules, and becoming a tight knit family. It is only when local petty criminal Sebastian (Danso Gordon) joins the group that things begin to come apart.
From this basic premise director Thomas Vinterburg and writer Lars Von Trier have established as interesting and absorbing a film as you are ever likely to see.Read more ›

I enjoyed the film immensely. The script and direction, which is a tad David Lynch in style, are both are good and the actors give fine performances. Definitely worth a watch,Published on 20 April 2013 by Amazon Customer
