Description

Megan Leavey is based on the true life story of a young marine corporal (Kate Mara) whose unique discipline and bond with her military combat dog saved many lives during their deployment in Iraq. When she is assigned to clean up the K9 unit after a disciplinary hearing, Leavey identifies with a particularly aggressive dog, Rex, and is given the chance to train him. Over the course of their service, Megan and Rex completed more than 100 missions until an IED explosion injures them, putting their fate in jeopardy. Directed by Gabriela Cowperthwaite (Blackfish) from a screenplay by Pamela Gray and Annie Mumolo & Tim Lovestedt, the film also stars Edie Falco, Ramón Rodríguez, Bradley Whitford, and Common.

    A great study on the trauma our vets go through when deployed and PTSD when they return.

    It's really too bad many photographers do not understand that when their camera shakes the audience gets "car sick" nausea. Not all scenes but enough to make my GF ill. And, a little tighter script would have been nice but nevertheless a good tear and appreciation for the perils of war. I agree with other reviewers that Kate and Rex don't really connect not sure why but know it when I see it.
  • Beautiful Movie.

    The inability of a young woman to relate to others, the lack of her parents, her mother in particular, to relate, the absent father, as so often, and the absence of meaning and direction in her life.... no discipline... it is so common. And yet, Megan turns it around and bonds, learns to care and gives, expecting nothing in return, like a parent and gets back what she never expected. For those of us hungry for those feelings it is the perfect movie, for those of us needing to learn to bond it is the perfect movie, for those of us animal lovers, it is the perfect movie. For those of us that are healthy critiques of the inflexibilities of the military and animal lovers - this is a good impetus to change policies!

    A good movie and Kate Mara does an excellent job portraying Megan Leavey. However the true beauty of this movie lies in the fact that it is based on a true story of two American heroes, the real Megan Leavey and her K-9, Rex, may he rest in peace. Thank you for your service, it is because of patriots like you that we can enjoy the freedoms we do on a daily basis in the greatest country ever.

    Loved this movie! If you have a dog and love them unconditionally, this will probably be a tear jerker for you. The best movie I've seen in awhile!
