This film is a great movie for its fighting scenes and its music score and its drama and wonderful script. Elvis acts amazingly well with Hope Lange. There is a sadness to the movie when the character played by Elvis starts to tell the story of how he could have saved his mother from dying. It's emotionally sensitive and well made.

Fine acting and hugely entertainingReviewed byJoe-290Vote: 7/10
Released in 1961, Wild In The Country would offer Elvis his last serious role in a film by a significant director (Philip Dunne). He gives what may be his finest acting performance as a troubled young man from a dysfunctional family whose passion is really writing.
There were fine supporting roles played by Millie Perkins as his girlfriend Betty Lee, Tuesday Weld as his cousin Noreen, and Hope Lange as his psychiatrist.
Although not ranked as high in my all time favourite Elvis movies, i found it a bit slow moving, but it is still worth the watch, and I think that the movie was good but then again i am an Elvis fan.
Elvis Presley plays a troubled young "country boy" who faces The Law after administering a deadly punch. He receives parole; then, the court has him move in with his uncle, and attend counseling sessions. There are three women who incur Elvis' attentions - Hope Lange is the "sophisticated" psychiatrist, Tuesday Weld is the "sexy" cousin, and Millie Perkins is the "nice" girl.
The story's structure is much like "Jailhouse Rock". It differs from that film in that Elvis more prowess as a actor than a singer. What hurts the film is a plodding story which becomes to hard to understand. It seems to be about the difference in societal classes. The religious imagery gets very heavy when, during a "flood", people march into a motel "two by two" with Elvis quoting the Bible.
Elvis' status as an undiscovered writer is made believable during a scene where the script give him some imaginative dialog, which he delivers well. Eventually, the film turns into a soap opera - more contrived than authentic. A couple of songs are nice, but they add nothing to the story.
