Synopsis

With an all-star cast led by screen legend Christopher Plummer and featuring Lynn Redgrave and Isabella Rossellini, MY DOG TULIP is a touching and uniquely animated adaptation of J. R. Ackerley’s enduring memoir that explores the highs and lows of the 16-year relationship he enjoyed with his adopted German Shepherd, Tulip.

Hailed as ‘the Best Dog Film ever’ by major critics, MY DOG TULIP is a funny and heart-warming look at the unique bond that occurs between a dog and his master. Created by Oscar-nominated filmmakers Paul and Sandra Fierlinger, MY DOG TULIP is a pioneering animated feature, the first to be entirely hand-drawn and painted utilising paperless computer technology.
