MY DOG TULIP (Theatrical Release USA 2009)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.1|5.0 Starsììì

Wow. My Dog Tulip is a surprisingly excellent story as interpreted with quaint, hand-drawn characters animated by Paul and Sandra Fierlinger. Despite some scenes which may not be appropriate for younger audiences, the story plays out well with Christopher Plummer narrating J. R. Ackerley’s narrative about a rescued female German Shepherd named Tulip.

The film poignantly details the conflicts and simple moments that J. R. Ackerley (Christopher Plummer) shares with Tulip while Tulip gradually ingratiates herself into the elevated position of ‘Man’s Best Friend’.
