Based on the New York Times bestseller, this movie tells the incredibly inspiring and heartwarming story of August Pullman, a boy with facial differences who enters the fifth grade, attending a mainstream elementary school for the first time.
Lasse Hallström "The Hundred-Foot Journey" directed this adaptation of the best-selling novel of the same name by W. Bruce Cameron, which follows a dog voiced by Josh Gad as he is reincarnated as different breeds belonging to various owners. Over the course of multiple lifetimes, the canine's existence intersects with that of a young boy who rescued him in 1962.
Name connection, possibly made deliberately by the filmmakers. When Bailey is reincarnated as the corgi and adopted by Maya, there is A-Ha's "Take on me" being played. The actress/model who appears in the original song video (not shown in the movie) is named Bunty Bailey. See more »

I saw the trailer some time ago. The trailer made me cry and I had high expectations of this movie. Happily the movie didn't let down to my expectations.

A must see, definitely if you are a dog lover.
