A Dog’s Courage
South Korea, 2019

The beautiful and inviting watercolor washes that form the natural world in this South Korean animated feature offer a welcome counterpoint to the story’s darker edges as a ragtag pack of abandoned dogs journey to find a place where they can rest and be free. Directors Oh Sung-yoon and Lee Chun-baek channel weightier modern fairy tales such as Watership Down and never soften their canines’ struggle, underscoring all the more poignantly the values of perseverance, togetherness and, ultimately, hope.

Digital, color, in Korean with English subtitles, 102 min. Directors: Oh Sung-yoon, Lee Chun-baek. Screenwriter: Oh Sung-yoon. With: Doh Kyung-soo, Park So-dam, Park Chul-min.

Recommend for ages 9+.
