A Dog's Purpose
Based on the beloved international bestselling novel by W. Bruce Cameron, “A Dog’s Purpose” is now available to rent or stream at home.
Unlike many Hollywood movies, this one has the author of the novel, W. Bruce Cameron, (along with his wife Cathryn Michon) among the screenwriters. Directed by Oscar nominee Lass Hallstrom (A Dog’s Life) the movie is produced by Gavin Polone (Zombieland).
The all-star cast includes Dennis Quaid (The Right Stuff), Britt Robertson (Tomorrowland), John Ortiz (Silver Linings Playbook), and Peggy Lipton (Crash). Josh Gad (Frozen) narrates the movie from the point of view of a dog who tells the story of how he continues to reincarnate, coming back each time as a dog, always remembering his past dog lives and his people, and always wondering, what is my purpose?
But perhaps the most amazing stars of A Dog’s Purpose are the dogs themselves.
