Megan Leavey tells the inspiring true story of a Marine in the U.S. military and the bond that she forms with her bomb sniffing combat dog. I'm normally not into films about dogs, but this one actually looks pretty good and it has a solid cast with Kate Mara in the title role. If you're a dog lover, I'm sure this is a movie you'll want to check out. Here's the synopsis:
Based on the true life story of a young marine corporal 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.
The rest of the cast includes Edie Falco, Common, Bradley Whitford, Ramon Rodriguez, and Geraldine James. The movie is set to be released on June 9th.
