Comics great Daniel Clowes adapts his 2010 graphic novel to the screen, and like his previous movies Ghost World and Art School Confidential -- both directed by Terry Zwigoff -- it's filled with vulgar, adult humor. But it's also extremely funny, truthful, and touching. In Wilson, Wilson (Woody Harrelson) is a dog-lover, and something of an outspoken optimist, expecting the best in human behavior and outraged when he doesn't get it. His life is changed when his father takes a turn for the worst, and he begins to despair about leaving the planet with nothing to show for it. But then fate re-introduces him to Pippi (Laura Dern), his ex-wife whom he's never quite forgotten.
