The Power of the Dog

The Power of the Dog

62nd TIFF: Greek Premiere

Land owner Phil Burbank inspires awe and fear to the ones around him. When his brother’s new wife, along with her son, settles in the family ranch, Phil torments the newcomers both mentally and physically. In reality, he strives to push aside the inner suspicion that he might just experience love for the first time in his life. A western of existential nuances that is already tuned to the Oscar buzz.
