Win preview tickets to see Red Dog

Red Dog

Preview by Jack Foley

DAMPIER, Western Australia, 1971. A wild and desolate place where workers from all over the world come here to sweat away.

When the sun goes down, these grafters make their way to the industrial hick town’s only pub where they drink, recall their homes and get involved in fights. But this particular night things are somewhat quieter than usual. In the back room a dog is drawing its last breath.

But this isn’t just any old cur, this is Red Dog, a dog everybody here knows and loves, and about whom everyone has a story to tell. No doubt about it, Red Dog really is a character – and tonight everyone is prepared to agree for once.

Directed by Kriv Stenders (The Illustrated Family Doctor, Blacktown), written by Dan Taplitz (Chaos Theory, Breakin’ All the Rules, Commandments), the film was shot on location in Western Australia, and is based on the novel by Louis De Bernieres (Captain Corelli’s Mandolin).

It stars Josh Lucas, Rachael Taylor and Koko.

The film collected six awards, including Best Film at the Australian Film Awards, and has now taken over $23m AUD and is No.7 in top Australian films of all time at the Australian Box Office.

Red Dog is in cinemas from February 24, with advanced previews from February 19, 2012. Check out the website for full cinema listings.
