The Power of the Dog

Play trailer

Jane Campion / GB, CA, AU, US, NZ, 2021 / 126 min.

Jane Campion is back after twelve years, and how: with a razor-sharp Western on rampant masculinity. Two very different but symbiotic brothers become entangled in an escalating confrontation after one of them brings a woman home. The power relations continue to shift in this film full of surprises and with a disquieting, futuristic score.

poster The Power of the Dog (Jane Campion, AU 2021)
Brothers Phil (Benedict Cumberbatch) and George Burbank (Jesse Plemons) are total opposites. Phil is charismatic but intensely cruel. George is rigid, choosy but gentle. They are both wealthy and own the biggest ranch in the Montana valley: a place where men wear the trousers, the modern world is kept at arm’s length and the mightiest cowboy of them all, Bronco Henry, is still a hero.
