A Dog Year (2009) (SC)
Release Date: December 7, 2010.
Based on the memoir by New York Times best-selling author Jon Katz, this film tells the story of a writer at a mid-life crossroads who agrees to adopt and train a high-strung border collie named Devon. Academy Award winner Jeff Bridges (Crazy Heart) delivers an Emmy-nominated performance in the role of Jon, who discovers that it's not the dog, but he himself who has lessons to learn. After a reality check visit from his daughter (Lauren Ambrose, Six Feet Under), he moves to a farmhouse where he's introduced to a dog whisperer (Lois Smith, True Blood) whose tough love approach sets Jon and Devon on a path to greater trust and understanding. But will it be enough to turn both their lives around? -- (C) HBO Films, 2009, USA.
