Lassie Trailer, Poster and Synopsis
Lassie is the timeless and heart warming tale of a beloved dog and her long journey to reunite with her family, starring Peter O’Toole, Samantha Morton, Peter Dinklage and Lassie.
Set on the eve of World War II in a Yorkshire mining town. After falling on hard times, the Carraclough family is forced to sell Lassie, their beloved dog, to the Duke of Rudling. When she succeeds in escaping her cage, Lassie finds herself transported five hundred miles away to the Duke’s remote castle on the northern coast of Scotland. However, she is determined to defy the odds and return to the home she loves. So begins an incredible adventure, set against a stunning series of landscapes, that sees Lassie facing dangers both natural and human and finding help in unexpected places as she makes her way across the country, to reach home in time for Christmas.
Though Lassie looks good and is probably deserving of all the honorable mentions it has already received, I have a hard time getting too dramatic over a single dog.
