The Power of the Dog is a mesmerizing western drama about a charismatic rancher who wages a war of intimidation on his brother’s new family when they come to live on their isolated farm in 1920s Montana.

From Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Jane Campion (The Piano) and adapted from Thomas Savage’s cult novel of the same name, The Power of the Dog is a story of domestic tyranny, thrilling defiance, and masculinity gone awry. The Burbank brothers are wealthy and successful ranchers, yet their personalities could not be more disparate. George (Jesse Plemons) is suited, shy, and sensitive while Phil (Benedict Cumberbatch, The Electrical Life of Louis Wain) is crude, contemptuous, and calculatingly cruel. During their travels, they meet Rose (Kirsten Dunst), a fragile, widowed proprietress of a hotel, and her impressionable, artistic son Peter (Kodi Smit-McPhee). As their lives become entangled, a psychological power struggle threatens to ignite a powder keg of jealousy, resentment, desire, and long-hidden secrets. Winner of Best Director at the 2021 Venice Film Festival. [2021, UK/Australia/US/Canada/New Zealand, 127 min, Rated: R]

Stephanie Archer of Film Inquiry writes, “A contender for one of the year’s best films, The Power of the Dog is sure to retain its strength come awards season.” David Sims of the Atlantic pens, “Campion understands the genre she’s working in, setting the roiling emotions of her characters against the striking landscapes; Cumberbatch’s performance is as immense as the peaks and valleys around him.”
