Anyone who ever owned a dog will love this tale of canine's search for his master. But Red Dog is also about people. The idea of community spirit, aided by an energetic troupe of characters, underpins the story.
Set in Dampier, W.A, a young truckie from out of town arrives at a pub and walks right into the middle of a drama. As the night unfolds, he is told the story of Red Dog (a ptich-perfect performance from Koko the red kelpie). Each player shares their stories about the stray that changed their seventies mining town, and about Red Dog's relationship with main man John, who Red Dog chose as his human companion - and John's love interest, Nancy.
Based on a true story, it is wonderful on screen and director Kriv Stenders avoids the cutesy and the mushy, and focuses on story and characters. The stunning cinematography and killer retro rock soundtrack add to the joy. Red Dog is moving, uplifting and very funny.
