The true story about an eccentric chicken farmer (Shane Jacobson) who, with the help of his granddaughter, trains his mischievous dog Oddball to protect a wild penguin sanctuary from fox attacks and in the process tries to reunite his family and save their seaside town.Written by
Oddball, is a great family film that really is engaging because of the true nature of the events. The cinematography is wonderful and bright, the actors are believable and the film combines small elements of conflict with comedy that pulls the film onward seamlessly. Dogs, penguins and lighthouses are always a winning combination and somewhat unique. This film is much more than just one neatly defined genre. It is a documentary, drama, comedy, action, suspense all rolled into one. I had the pleasure of speaking with the producer after a screening and what sets this film apart from many is the sheer level of dedication in regards to time and overcoming weather challenges to bring this film to the public eye and it is indeed a treasure that will leave you wanting to learn more and perhaps even become an advocate.
