Tonight I saw a fabulous new Australian movie called Red Dog. It is a true story about a dog and the impact he had on a mining town in Western Australia in the 70s. The performances are great and the dog is amazing. You will laugh and you will cry. The best thing about it is unlike most animal movies the dog doesn't do anything special but just be a dog. And using a cliche, it is a quintessential Aussie movie. It could not be anything else or be set anywhere in the location in which it is. I have heard it will get international distribution so I hope it comes to your part of the world soon. And if you do please go and see it.
