The power of the dog  Cover Image DVD DVD

The power of the dog / Netflix presents in association with The New Zealand Film Commission, Cross City Films & BBC Films ; a See-Saw Films & Bad Girl Creek production ; a Max Films production ; produced by Emile Sherman, Iain Canning, Roger Frappier, Jane Campion, Tanya Seghatchian ; written and directed by Jane Campion.


Jane Campion returns to the kind of mythic frontier landscape--pulsating with both freedom and menace--that she previously traversed in The Piano in order to plumb the masculine psyche in The Power of the Dog, set against the desolate plains of 1920s Montana and adapted by the filmmaker from Thomas Savage's novel. After a sensitive widow and her enigmatic, fiercely loving son move in with her gentle new husband, a tense battle of wills plays out between them and his brutish brother, whose frightening volatility conceals a secret torment, and whose capacity for tenderness, once reawakened, may offer him redemption or destruction. Campion, who won an Academy Award for her direction here, charts the repressed desire and psychic violence coursing among these characters with the mesmerizing control of a master at the height of her powers.
