Whoever thinks that the countryside is calm and peaceful is mistaken. In it we find especially agitated animals, a Fox that thinks it's a chicken, a Rabbit that acts like a stork, and a Duck who wants to replace Father Christmas. If you want to take a vacation, keep driving past this place.
After losing her parents in a car accident, Okko starts living in the countryside with her grandmother who runs a traditional Japanese inn. While she prepares to be the next owner of the inn, Okko can somehow see friendly ghosts.

When Ethan and Hannah are at the kitchen sink, we see them from inside and from outside of the house. From the outside, we can see their faces above the curtains, but from the inside, the curtains are above their heads. See more »

It's funny how much I've come around on this series since its inception in early 2017. From being too schmaltzy to being an incredibly heartfelt story about the bond between an owner and his/her dog. The conclusion to this story is beyond satisfying and one that every dog owner will almost definitely relate to on some level. The journey of Bailey (voice by Josh Gad) continues as his purpose extends past Ethan and Hannah, this time looking over CJ, Ethan's step-granddaughter. While being overly sentimental and manipulative at times, it never tries to reach beyond its grasp. It's the good kind of manipulative, especially since it had me tearing up for the better part of the last 30 minutes. A Dog's Purpose is yet another win for dog movie lovers everywhere.
