Editors Note
Note Many people missed out on the charming gem THE HOAX, but this family drama reunites actor Richard Gere and director Lasse Halström. Born out of real-life events, HACHI: A DOG'S TALE (aka HACHIKO: A DOG?S STORY) tells the tale of Hachi, a faithful dog who would walk his owner to and from the train station every day. But when the man unexpectedly dies, Hachi continues his daily routine of waiting for his master at the train station for the next nine years, becoming a fixture in the community.
Hollywood Reporter "Gere and Allen bring conviction and dignity to their portrayals. Hallstrom does a good job creating a sense of community..." 06/17/2009
Entertainment Weekly "[T]his one's a three-hankie gem. Based on a true story..." -- Grade: A- 03/12/2010
Empire 4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]his tear-jerker is all the more effective for underplaying its surefire man-and-dog romance....[Hallstrom] pitches this one perfectly." 03/12/2010
Sight and Sound "[The film has] an understated, quiet emotion which makes the home stretch all the more affecting." 05/01/2010
