Jane Campion is a director from New Zealand who has come with her new drama 'The Power of the Dog' after a decade of her making of Big Star based on the life of the poet, John Keats.
The western drama cast Kristen Dunst and Benedict Cumberbatch in the lead roles. The story of 'The Power of the Dog' is all about good emotions and affection between characters and the bond of love that they share. It also shows the negative concept of hatred and jealousy associated with the conflict in the drama.
Benedict Cumberbatch plays the role of Phil Burbank and Jesse Plemons plays the character named George Plemons. The duo appears as two brothers in the drama who seems like Siamese twins despite the differences between their thoughts and personalities.
George and Phil are two owners of the 1920s farm named Montana.
In Montana, the two brothers train beautiful horses and raise livestock and Benedict Cumberbatch is the protagonist here in this drama of Campion. The music in 'The Power of the Dog' by Jonny Greenwood and Cinematography by Ari Wegner proves to be outstanding.
Phil is an apathetic, harsh, and contemptibly foolish person who keeps mocking his brother George and makes fun of him for no reason. George appears to be a perfect gentleman always dressed smartly but he is not seen much in the entire drama.
George brings home his new wife named Rose along with her son Peter and starts receiving more harsh behavior from his brother. According to Phil, the world is meant for the fittest one who keeps insulting and humiliating Rose and her son every time they confront him.
