Many disturbing films will be released this year, some will be quite weird. But only one will be both and feature the most adorable “hot dog” you ever did see.
From Welcome to the Dollhouse director Todd Solondz, Weiner-Dog is described as:
A twisted Lassie for misanthropes. It follows the wayward adventures of a dachshund who passes from oddball owner to oddball owner-including the world”s worst mom, a beleaguered screenwriter, and the grownup incarnation of Welcome to the Dollhouse”s Dawn Wiener-whose radically dysfunctional lives are all impacted by the pooch.
Featuring an all-star cast that includes Greta Gerwig, Julie Delpy, Danny DeVito, Ellen Burstyn, and Zosia Mamet, Weiner-Dog may not be the oddest film to come out of Sundance, but it is the one most likely to piss off animal lovers.
Take a look at the trailer below.
Weiner-Dog hits theaters on Jun 24.
