Overview

Jane Campion makes her much anticipated return to the big screen with The Power of the Dog, her first feature since 2009’s Bright Star. Set in 1920s Montana, this masterfully crafted western is adapted from Thomas Savage’s popular 1967 novel. Young widow Rose (Kirsten Dunst) moves onto a cattle ranch with her son (Kodi Smit-McPhee) and her new husband George (Jesse Plemons). There, she is tormented by the bullying ways of George’s brother, Phil (Benedict Cumberbatch). Phil’s violent and ill-tempered manner is in direct opposition to Rose’s gentle, kind nature, and the tension between the two reaches boiling point.

Winner: Silver Lion for Best Director
— Venice Film Festival 2021
“A film which shimmers with intelligence”
— BBC
“Nothing short of extraordinary. An indecently powerful western”
— The Times
“It’s a pleasure to sink into Campion’s smart, entertaining and terrifically tense sand-painting of a picture”
— TIME
