Review by J1 Reporter Molly Smith
We all love a dog movie, whether it’s “Marley and Me” or “A Dog’s Purpose,” and the newest one, “The Art of Racing in the Rain,” is my favorite one yet. From the casting to the message, it was definitely added to my list of the best movies.
This movie is the story of Denny Swift, a race car driver doing life alongside the three most important people in his life, his dog, Enzo, his wife, Eve, and their daughter, Zoe. The movie dives into the mind of Enzo and you get to witness Denny’s life from his dog’s point of view.
Denny often reinforces that the techniques he needs to succeed on the racetrack can also help him race his way through his everyday life.
One benefit of this movie is how family friendly it is, being rated PG. It promotes love and a positive purpose in life. I would rate this movie five out of five stars.
Through all of the highs and lows the main characters experience, they remain close knit and keep a positive outlook on their lives, which I highly admired.
The movie ran for two hours and three minutes, and it felt like a very fitting length. This movie fell into the drama and comedy drama category. It came out Aug. 9, 2019 in theaters and is now available for streaming on Amazon Prime.
