Based on the book by Louis de Bernieres (Corelli's Mandolin), Red Dog is inspired by a true story of a beloved, wandering Kelpie that won hearts across Western Australia in the 1970s. Set in the picturesque but rugged Australian port town of Dampier populated by a maverick group of miners, the film is a heartwarming, humorous and touching portrayal of a community's love for a dog and a dog's loyalty to his master. Red Dog was Australia's #1 grossing film in 2011, which may speak to the enduring power of the legend of this unique dog, or it may underscore a deeper longing people have to seek common ground and community in spite of our differences and isolation.
Unrated, but appropriate for all audiences over the age of 13. Contains some adult language and content.
