Wilson Brothers’ “The Wendell Baker Story” out on DVD

We have been rightfully caught up in the excitement over Hotel Chevalier, The Darjeeling Limited, and the Criterion version of Bottle Rocket, BUT… The Wendell Baker Story (2005) — a film co-directed by, written by, and co-starring Luke Wilson — will be available on DVD October 30th. Andrew Wilson co-directed, Owen co-stars. From Stephen Holden’s New York Times review piece:

This shambling, good-natured comedy is a Wilson family affair. Written by Luke Wilson, who directed with his older brother Andrew, it also stars a third brother, Owen, as Wendell’s nemesis. The appeal of “The Wendell Baker Story” depends on how charming you find the Wilson brothers, with their chipmunk grins and hip smart-aleck attitude. For my taste, a little goes a long way (more reviews).
