WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

A dachshund dog is passed around from owner to owner, including social misfit Dawn Wiener (Gerwig) and screenwriting lecturer Dave Schmerz (DeVito), and leaves an impact on all of their radically dysfunctional lives…

IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?

Wiener-Dog marks the return of the undisputed master of black comedy Todd Solondz after five years, and if any of his previous films like Happiness or Welcome to the Dollhouse are an indication then we should be in for a messed-up pile of ideas combined into one darkly hilarious package.
