The Power of the Dog Rated 12A

The Power of the Dog

Dir. Jane Campion. Australia, 2021. 2h 7m. Starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Kirsten Dunst, Jesse Plemons, Thomasin McKenzie, Keith Carradine.

Life on a 1920s Montana farm is thrown into disarray when the brother of a charismatic rancher returns with his new wife and stepson. Jane Campion (The Piano) delivers a fascinating study of masculinity in this enthralling revisionist western featuring stunning cinematography by Ari Wegner and a disorienting score by Oscar-nominated composer Jonny Greenwood.

‘It's a film which shimmers with intelligence, and if the plot isn't clear until the very last scene, well, it's worth the wait.’ ★★★★★ Nicholas Barber, BBC

‘The Power of the Dog sticks its teeth into you so fast and furtively that you may not feel the sting on your skin until after the credits roll, but the delayed bite of the film’s ending doesn’t stop it from leaving behind a well-earned scar.’ ★★★★★ David Ehrlich, IndieWire
