The Power of the Dog

Part of the Oscars 22 Season


Rancher Phil Burbank (Benedict Cumberbatch) is an intimidating presence to all but his brother George (Jesse Plemons). The two men run a hugely successful inherited ranch on the edge of a tiny frontier town in the early 1920s. With only the company of the rough cattlehands, George yearns for something a little more refined, while Phil is content with their mutual isolation. When George brings home a new wife (Kirsten Dunst) and her teenage son (Kodi Smit-McPhee), Phil turns on his most arresting power to torment. Adapting from a novel by Thomas Savage, Jane Campion grips you from the start and expertly ratchets the tension, whilst Benedict Cumberbatch brilliantly terrorises every frame with silent menace.
