National Dog Day

 In NCI News

Ever wonder how dog became mans best friend? They made a movie about it.

All dogs are descendants of wolves. Which evidently makes a great mans best friend movie.

The movie in question is Alpha. The film which takes place in the time of stone spears and tools,  explores a struggling hunter partnering up with a wolf that was rejected from his pack.
Two outcasts making an unlikely bond in an effort to survive the lands harsh unforgiving weather.
Scoring 80% on Rotten Tomatoes, it is a quality family time movie that can be enjoyed for generations to come.

This is one film I recommend for just anyone. Great Cinematics, Great story of survival of the original people of the land.
