I might be a little late getting on board with this amazing Australian film. The cold weather pushed me into the warmth of bedroom and several woolly blankets with DVDs as my best source of entertainment (while not moving and letting the heat out!). Finally I experienced Red Dog.
I'm a fan of Australian films in general because they tend to stay away from Hollywood glamour and tell a truly honest story; this is exactly how I felt about Red Dog.
Directed by Kriv Stenders and starring Josh Lucas, Rachael Taylor and Noah Taylor, this film tells the story of an intelligent and people-loving, hitch-hiking Kelpie who became a communal pet and faithful companion for the mining town of Dampier.
