The Power of the Dog

by Jane Campion Gala Premieres

Brothers Phil and George Burbank are large-ranch owners living in 1920s Montana. Although inseparable, the two could not be more different. In stark contrast to the worldlier George, the more solitary Phil prefers to resist anything new and stifles his feelings with alcohol and loneliness. When George marries the widowed Rose and moves her and her son onto the ranch, his brother feels betrayed and declares war on the unwanted intruders. Oscar-winning director Jane Campion dissects traditional concepts of masculinity with a fine blade, while using the camera to create images of sublime beauty that are perfectly staged, down to the last, minute detail. This unusual western is carried by such character actors as Benedict Cumberbatch, Jesse Plemons and Kirsten Dunst.
