The Power of the Dog

126 mins.
Directed by Jane Campion

Charismatic rancher Phil Burbank (Benedict Cumberbatch) inspires fear and awe in those around him. When his brother brings home a new wife (Kirsten Dunst) and her son (Kodi Smit-McPhee), Phil torments them until he finds himself exposed to the possibility of love.

Written and directed by Jane Campion (THE PIANO, BRIGHT STAR), from the novel by Thomas Savage.

“A great American story and a dazzling evisceration of one of the country’s foundational myths... THE POWER OF THE DOG builds tremendous force, gaining its momentum through the harmonious discord of its performances, the nervous rhythms of Jonny Greenwood’s score and the grandeur of its visuals.” Manohla Dargis.
