“On the ragged edge of the world I’ll roam, and the home of the wolf shall be my home.” –Robert Service, The Nostomaniac. Druid Peak is a coming of age story about a troubled teenage boy who finds a home tracking wolves in the wild lands of the Wyoming. Sixteen year-old Owen is a bully with a mean streak. Growing up in coal country West Virginia, he struggles against the claustrophobia of small town life, lashing out against school and family. But when his actions lead to the death of a friend, he is sent to live with his estranged father, Everett, a biologist on Yellowstone’s wolf reintroduction program. At first, Owen wants no part of this new life. Then he comes face to face with a wolf. The creature’s deep, penetrating gaze startles him, stirring something long dead inside his own self. Sensing signs of change, Everett encourages Owen to collect some basic data about the wolf he saw and its family pack. Owen’s small assignment grows into a passion and his own life becomes tied to the Druid Peak pack and their struggle for survival. Shot on location in West Virginia, Wyoming, Montana and Utah, the film stars Andrew Wilson (Rushmore, The Royal Tennenbaums), Spencer Treat Clark (Mystic River, Gladiator) and Rachel Korine (Spring Breakers, Septien). A coming of age story with a conservation twist, Druid Peak is a film about the human soul’s need for wild things, and the challenges of holding onto them.
