A dog lover’s movie review.
Not a movie for everyone, but a lovely easy going flick that flows like a short story, that definitely is for anyone who has ever rescued a dog. Also for anyone whoever arrived home with an animal and was met with “You’re not going to keep “that!” are you?” at the door from someone they loved. Also for anyone who has found themselves realizing they love their pet more than they love the imperfect humans around them. This movie reminds us that “love is love” regardless of whether you give it to your dog, your cat, or a human being. Love is a powerful force and is not any less powerful based on the size of the recipient.
I am certain there is more than one family where one spouse has said to the other one “You love that dog more than me!” and could not fathom the other person’s reasons or emotions. This movie will, if not help the confused spouse understand the other, will help the accused feel better about their unwavering commitment and attachment to their pet. If only we all loved our dogs as much the main character Beth, does. If we all had that much love and devotion for all living things, the world would be a better place indeed.
