It’s STACK‘s Friday Flick time, where we recommend a slice of classic movie viewing that’s sure to get your weekend off to a great start. This week, our work experience student Tom Mackie has selected a personal favourite: Red Dog.

Based on a true-blue Australian legend, Red Dog is the story of a stray kelpie who wanders into the Western Australian mining town of Dampier in search of his master and develops a bond with bus driver John Grant (Josh Lucas), as well as winning the hearts of the locals.

Rightly regarded as a modern Australian classic, Red Dog will have you laughing, crying and admiring the awesome WA landscape. Directed by Kriv Stenders, this award-winning feel-good flick is the perfect movie for a quiet Friday night in – just be sure to keep the tissues nearby.

Four reasons why Red Dog rocks:

1. Who doesn’t like a good dog movie?

2. The classic Aussie humour.

3. ‘For everyone, but no one in particular.’

4. The all-Australian soundtrack.
