When my kids were little, we enjoyed going to the movies to watch shows that provided wholesome family feelings. We also loved gathering on the couch to rent the latest family feature film. My kids aren’t little anymore, but as a Nana to two little ones, I am continually on the hunt for movies I can enjoy with the grandkids.
New in theaters this month is The Stray.
It is a movie about a stray dog who saves a family in more ways than one. Here’s a little synopsis:
“Pluto” comes out of nowhere and quickly makes himself at home with the Davis family, who are on the brink of falling apart. Dad (Michael Cassidy; Argo, Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice) is a career-driven workaholic who is neglecting his marriage and family. Mom (Sarah Lancaster; Chuck, Saved by the Bell: The New Class) is at her wit’s end raising three young kids. The last thing they need is another mouth to feed. Or is it? In just a short time with the Davis family, Pluto the “wonderdog” manages to save a lost toddler, bring comfort and companionship to a hurting 9-year-old boy (Connor Corum; Heaven is for Real), help restore a marriage, and repair a broken father-son relationship. Pluto is not only a guard dog – he’s a guardian angel.
Sometimes help comes from the most unlikely places. Sometimes our prayers get answered in strange ways. Sometimes one dog can change everything.
This precious movie isn’t yet playing near me. I am hopeful that it will do well enough to open in more theatres. But if not, I may take a small drive so that I can enjoy it with my grandson.
Here’s the official movie trailer for you to enjoy!
