My Dog Tulip
May 06, 2011
2009 (United States)
Beautifully animated and featuring an all-star cast voiced by Christopher Plummer, the late Lynn Redgrave (in her last film to be released), and Isabella Rossellini, MY DOG TULIP is a touching; bittersweet adaptation of the late British author, J. R. Ackerley?s enduring memoir, exploring the 16-year relationship with his adopted Alsatian bitch, Tulip. Widely praised upon its U.S. release, MY DOG TULIP is a profound and subtle mediation on the strangeness that lies at the heart of all relationships. Written, directed and animated by award-winning (and Academy Nominated) filmmakers, Paul and Sandra Fierlinger, it is the first animated feature ever to be entirely hand drawn and painted utilizing paperless computer technology.
