Directed by Wes Anderson
Written by Wes Anderson

Starring Bryan Cranston, Edward Norton, Liev Schreiber, Billy Murray, Scarlett Johansson, and Yoko Ono

In this stop-motion-animated film from writer/director Wes Anderson, an outbreak of canine flu in Japan leads all dogs to be quarantined on an island. A boy (voice of Koyu Rankin) journeys there to rescue his dog Spots (Liev Schreiber), and gets help from a pack of misfit canines who have also been exiled. His quest inspires a group of dog lovers to expose a government conspiracy. The voice cast also includes Bryan Cranston, Edward Norton, Bill Murray, Scarlett Johansson, Tilda Swinton, Bob Balaban, Greta Gerwig, and Yoko Ono.

"Think of it as Wall-E meets A Boy and His Dog, then has a one-nighter at The Grand Budapest Hotel.... We get lost looking at the familiar from a Jonathan Swift standpoint and the ordinary begins to look odd."--Katherine Monk, Ex-Press.com

"My sincere take on the film is that it's a sly and sweet and smart homage to dogs, who at their darkest moments are still pretty great, and we humans are lucky to have 'em around."--Richard Roepoer, Chicago Sun-Times
