Likeable Family Film
on 26 February 2012
"Red Dog" is a film based on a true story about a Western Australian stray dog who unites a rough mining town with his winning personality. It's a bit like "Greyfriars Bobby" in places as the dog will only let one man be his master. However once his master dies in tragic circumstances the dog goes wandering over the north west of Australia (and bizarrely Japan) in search of him before returning to his adopted home. Most of the main characters have big hearts and are likeable and the cinematography in the film is memorable. "Red Dog" is a good,down to earth, often funny film, ideal for a family afternoon out at the cinema, or a quiet night in when the DVD comes out.
