I don’t usually cry at movies but I made the mistake of watching this film alone. The director, Kelly Reichardt, values the relationship between a human and a dog. We watch as Wendy drives cross-country to a new job in Alaska with her dog Lucy. We discover the bonds between an owner and their dog during some tough circumstances. The ending bothered me a little, I prefer happy endings, but it fits the film. If you are a dog lover or an owner of a dog–watch this film.
