Netflix has unveiled the first images of its highly anticipated film “The Power of the Dog”, a western by Jane Campion with Benedict Cumberbatch and Kirsten Dunst in the lead roles.
More than twelve years after the release of her latest film Bright Star, New Zealand director Jane Campion is finally back with a new feature film titled The Power of the Dog (from the novel The Power of the Dog by Thomas Savage). This western notably brings together Benedict Cumberbatch as a brutal ranch owner, as well as Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons.
A first teaser of the film expected on December 1 on Netflix has been unveiled by the platform (see above). Remember that Jane Campion, the first female co-winner of the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival for La Leçon de piano in 1993, will be awarded the Lumière prize in Lyon next October for all of her work.
