Fun little movie with a lot of heart.
5 September 2012 | by fader75See all my reviews

I saw this at the screening last year at the Pacific Design Center in LA. It's not a big Hollywood blockbuster by any stretch but it is a poignant little film that dares to tackle big themes. The performances are real and raw and surprisingly engaging. The dogs are fantastic and truly ground the rest of the film. Joel's relationship with his dad is the central story and it parallels my own relationship with my father, this is one of the big reasons the film hit home with me. It wanders at times and sometimes seems lost between drama and comedy (but hey, so does life!) but pulls it all together by the end. What can I say, I liked it and had a real and tangible emotional reaction to the story. Anyone that can do that in a film that obviously didn't have big bucks to throw at the screen in worthy of my vote.
