Year of the Dog (Mike White, 2007)

***½
USA

An off-centre, admirably committed portrayal of a near-middle-aged woman, whose most poignant relationship in life is with her dog - and then the dog dies. Though he's constantly treading on the edge of hollow quirk and cutesiness, writer-director Mike White very rarely crosses it, and he's served with uniformly note-perfect performances from his fine cast.
