In honor of the great Peter O'Toole
, we offer an exclusive engagement of this 2008 gem little known in America. Set in Edwardian England, this warm and funny story focuses on the relationship between Fisk Junior (Jeremy Northam
) and his emotionally distant father Fisk Senior (O'Toole
). After attending a swami's lecture on the transmigration of souls, they meet a soldier of fortune named Wrather (Bryan Brown
) and a vicar named Dean Spanley (Sam Neill
), and over a rare and liberating bottle of Tokay, Dean Spanley begins to reminisce about his own past life as a dog. This charming and quirky tale has a great deal to say about fathers and sons and contains enough dog love to make you want to chase rabbits when exiting the theater. Writer: Alan Sharp
, based on My Talks with Dean Spanley
by Lord Dunsany
. Director: Toa Fraser
. (New Zealand/UK 2008) 100 min.
