Woody Harrelson stars as Wilson, a lonely, neurotic and hilariously honest middle-aged misanthrope who reunites with his estranged wife (Laura Dern) and gets a shot at happiness when he learns he has a teenage daughter (Isabella Amara) he has never met. In his uniquely outrageous and slightly twisted way, he sets out to connect with her.
WILSON is directed by Craig Johnson (THE SKELETON TWINS, TRUE ADOLESCENTS) with a screenplay by Daniel Clowes (GHOST WORLD, ART SCHOOL CONFIDENTIAL), based on the graphic novel of the same name written by Clowes.
