Synopsis

A Dog’s Purpose is the story of one dog with lots ofmany lives. Starting off as Bailey, the best friend of 8-year-old Ethan, he is then reincarnated as Buddie, Tino and even becomes female as Ellie, finding a different owner every time. Taking place across the years from 1950s to the modern day, the dog begins to wonder what his purpose is in life as he takes the form of a Golden Retriever, a German Shepherd, a Welsh Corgi and a Bernese Mountain Dog. Yet, as he forms a unique bond with every new owner, helping them through important moments in their lives, and even returning to his first owner Ethan later in life, his purpose becomes clear. This is a heartwarming American drama full of dog frolicks and laughter to balance its more emotional scenes.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
