Fidos on Film!
I always enjoy a movie with a great dog character (as long as the plot is not too sad, otherwise I spend the whole time crying). At the moment there are two great movies now showing at cinemas around Australia, that feature dogs: Red Dog and Beginners. Here at Puppy Tales we have been lucky enough to get our hands on some 2-for-1 passes for Beginners which was released in Australia last Thursday, and we are keen to give them away to some lucky readers!
Beginners is a “tender film about love, romance, loss and life in all its messiness and beauty” and stars Ewan McGregor. But more importantly the film also features Arthur, a Jack Russell terrier, who plays Oliver’s (Ewan McGregor) most trusted companion. Arthur’s name in real life is Cosmo, who was only rescued a few years ago by the animal trainer Mathilde de Cagny from a Southern Californian shelter. In the movie Oliver chats to Arthur about how he’s feeling, and Arthur’s responses appear on screen in subtitles. Below is a clip from the film where one of these really lovely human/dog conversations take place.
How do you get your hands on a pass?
If you would like to win one of these passes just comment below by letting us know your favourite movie that features a dog. The first seven people to comment will receive a pass, which I will send out in the post (please note these passes are only valid in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Adelaide and Perth).
Happy popcorn eating!!
