In the tradition of Hachi: A Dog's Tale, this is the story of a legendary, lovable red dog who roamed the outback looking for his original master, finding his way into the hearts of everyone he meets, bringing people and communities together, some who find love, and others who find themselves. Based on true events. Written by
Last film role for Bill Hunter. The Cup was released later although the scenes featuring Hunter had been filmed years earlier. See more »
Much of the action takes place in the pub, but nobody is smoking. All pubs, especially in mining towns, would have been blue with smoke haze in those days. See more »

The Red Dog film has been inspired by events, which may or may not have happened, but have become Pilbara Outback folklore. All the human characters in this film are invented, fictitious and imaginary. See more »

I saw this movie 25 May 2011 as part of Cinefestoz in Busselton, Western Australia and it is AWESOME! It has to be one of the best family movies that I have seen - and as far as animal movies - tops. Yes, digitalized graphics for a few sections but no, the dog doesn't talk, he doesn't dance and he doesn't do anything that a dog shouldn't do. Koko the dog has expressions that would make some actors look wooden. He steals your heart. The landscapes of the northwest show the expanse of the area, whilst capturing the spirit of the 'settlers' of Dampier, which is a real town. It's a wild country and the stubby shorts the blokes are wearing are so 1970's I wonder where they got them all. Josh Lucas is oh so gorgeous, and so is Rachel Taylor, and the 'real characters' maybe cliché, but you know what, it doesn't matter because it makes the movie even more real and enjoyable.
We laughed, we cried, we laughed, we cried and were moved by a story that crosses time and age and is based on a true story. Thank you for bringing it to us.
