The Year of the Dog

The Year of the Dog is a wonderful story of love and self discovery. Centered around a woman who loses her beloved dog, and searches for herself. There are bumps along the road, but she deals with them, and ultimately finds herself, and figures out where her true love lies. The cast is small and strong. Molly Shannon is masterful as the main character (who knew). John C. Reily, Peter Sarsgaard, Laura Dern, Thomas McCarthy, Josh Pais and Regina King all develop their characters well. This film was a pleasant surprise for me, really enjoyed it.
