Dear Wendy is a 2004 film directed by Thomas Vinterberg, and starring Jamie Bell, Bill Pullman, Mark Webber and Alison Pill.
It is a co-production between Denmark, Germany, France, and the United Kingdom. The script was written by Lars von Trier.
The film was a box office bomb and received overwhelming negative reviews, frequently being compared unfavourably to von Trier's award-winning Dogville, released the previous year. Despite the negative critical response, Vinterberg won the Silver St. George for Best Director at the 27th Moscow International Film Festival.
The teenage members of a group of self-proclaimed pacifists decide to carry guns. They call themselves The Dandies. Their club is assembled from the young misfits in a fictional small American mining town, Electric Park. It is started after the main character, Dick Dandelion (Jamie Bell), buys what he thinks is a toy gun as a gift. His co-worker tells him the gun is real, and the two start shooting and studying in their spare time. They later recruit other outcasts, young men (and one young woman) who do not, or cannot, work in the mine, including one boy in leg braces and his younger brother Freddie.
