Product Description

Starring Sam Rockwell and Mischa Barton this is in fact the last film that Rank actually made. A perfect, magical movie about a friendship between an emotionally isolated young girl in a ritzy, phoney neighbourhood, and a shunned, blue collar worker. In this touching tale of friendship against adversity the 10 year old Devon Stockard (Mischa Barton) and her parents (Kathleen Quinlan and Christopher McDonald) have just arrived in the exclusive gated community Camelot Gardens. Unlike her practical and ambitious parents Devon likes to be alone in her own imaginary worlds and whilst exploring outside the fence she stumbles upon the trailer of Trent (Sam Rockwell) a 22 year old lawn dog who mows the lawns for a living. Even though he is taunted by the rich college kids of the insular community an unlikely yet fulfilling friendship blossoms between the two outsiders. When the townsfolk misunderstand this innocent relationship and Trent is wrongly suspected of being a child molester, it is down to Devon to fight the suspicion and paranoia and find the strength to try to save him. 10-year old Devon Stockard (played by Barton) is new to Camelot Gardens, an up-market housing development. Unlike her socially ambitious parents, she likes to be alone in her imaginative world. She stumbles upon the trailer of Trent, a 22-year old lawn dog who mows lawns for a living, even though he is taunted by the rich college kids. Slowly, an unlikely and fulfilling friendship is born between the two outsiders, that is actually completely innocent, but given the child-adult nature of the friendship it is obvious that it would be unacceptable to the residents if they were found out. ...A pointedly whimsical film.... It shows off a poised young actress and a leading man with charisma to burn... -- Janet Maslin, New York Times "...Duigan reveals the truth and humour of growing up in a sheltered, unforgiving suburbia... -- Christine Spines, Premiere "...Beguilingly offbeat....Rockwell emerges as a compelling actor..." -- Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times

From Amazon.co.uk

No review of Lawn Dogs can adequately describe this extraordinary movie, nor can the title or any simple synopsis. In fact, there's no way of knowing what Lawn Dogs is really about until the very end when the last 90-minutes takes on a whole new significance.

The basic story follows the formation and fruition of a simple friendship. Devon (astounding newcomer Mischa Barton) is a 10-year-old girl born to glamour magazine identikit parents who live in the plush US suburban Camelot Gardens Estate. Trent (Sam Rockwell) is a 20-something lawnmower man whom everyone considers trash and who lives in a forest trailer. As secret friends they fill the holes in one another's lives. She has no other friends because she thinks "other kids smell like TV". It's all perfectly sweet and innocent. But naturally there's no way the uptight neighbourhood would perceive it that way. A creeping sense of doom begins to overtake events; but it is where this seemingly obvious tale twists at the end that makes the community's darker quirks a revelation.

On the DVD: Lawn Dogs on disc comes in a 16:9 transfer that retains the superb cinematography of endlessly stretching flat horizons. The three-channel sound is equally of benefit to a subtle bluesy score. Regrettably the only extra is a trailer. As a winner at numerous International Film Festivals, this picture really deserved something more. --Paul Tonks --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
