About the Movie

Harley-Davidson, leather, tattooed biceps: Ron "Stray Dog" Hall looks like an authentic tough guy. A Vietnam veteran, he runs a trailer park in rural Missouri with his wife, Alicia, who recently emigrated from Mexico. Gradually, a layered image comes into focus of a man struggling to come to terms with his combat experience. When Alicia's teenage sons arrive, the film reveals a tender portrait of an America outside the mainstream. Stray Dog is a powerful look at the veteran experience, a surprising love story, and a fresh exploration of what it takes to survive in the hardscrabble heartland.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Perhaps its greatest virtue lies in its powerful, implicit challenge to the lazy habit of looking at American life through polarized red- and blue-tinted lenses. – A.O. Scott, New York Times, Jul 2, 2015

Fresh: Though Stray Dog is slowly paced and at times a bit repetitive, Granik and her crew rarely risk losing their audience's attention, and they uncover a wealth of images that are alternately striking, symbolic and singular. – Andrew Barker, Variety, Jun 29, 2015

Fresh: Expertly playing with our preconceived notions, Granik's multidimensional portrait also serves as a telling state-of-the-union address, as seen through the caring eyes of her philosophical main subject. – Michael Rechtshaffen, Los Angeles Times, Jul 23, 2015

Fresh: It's a sad, telling film. – Todd McCarthy, Hollywood Reporter, Jun 29, 2015
