The latest from world-class director Jane Campion (The Piano), THE POWER OF THE DOG paints a disturbing picture of toxic masculinity and repressed homosexuality in the American West. Set in 1920’s Montana, the film stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Jesse Plemons as a pair of brothers who become involved with a widow (Dunst) and her ostracized son (Smit-McPhee).
“‘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, New York Times
