Movie pick of the month
Year of the Dog starring Molly Shannon and written and directed by Mike White tells the story of Peggy, whose life changes in ways she never imagined after her beagle, Pencil, dies. This idependent film was hardly blockbuster. I'd never even heard of it until my daughter picked it up for a dollar when our local video store was liquidating. For those who like a less-than-typical Hollywood ending this is a great film. If you are looking for the same old "boy meets girl" dreck though, you won't find it here.
