Benedict Cumberbatch Leads Jane Campion’s New Drama

Netflix has finally revealed the official The Power of the Dog trailer for Oscar-winning filmmaker Jane Campion’s upcoming film adaptation, based on a 1967 cult novel by Thomas Savage. Starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Kodi Smit-McPhee, the film is set to premiere in select theaters on November 17, followed by its Netflix debut on December 1.

The video, which you can check out below along with the new posters, highlights the commanding presence of Cumberbatch’s Phil Burbank, a wealthy rancher who’s opposed to his brother’s new wife and stepson. Because of this, he’ll give them both a hard time through rude and indifferent acts that humiliate them.

“Severe, pale-eyed, handsome, Phil Burbank is brutally beguiling,” the official film synopsis reads. “All of Phil’s romance, power and fragility is trapped in the past and in the land: He can castrate a bull calf with two swift slashes of his knife; he swims naked in the river, smearing his body with mud. He is a cowboy as raw as his hides.

“The year is 1925. The Burbank brothers are wealthy ranchers in Montana. At the Red Mill restaurant on their way to market, the brothers meet Rose, the widowed proprietress, and her impressionable son Peter. Phil behaves so cruelly he drives them both to tears, reveling in their hurt and rousing his fellow cowhands to laughter – all except his brother George, who comforts Rose then returns to marry her.

“As Phil swings between fury and cunning, his taunting of Rose takes an eerie form – he hovers at the edges of her vision, whistling a tune she can no longer play. His mockery of her son is more overt, amplified by the cheering of Phil’s cowhand disciples. Then Phil appears to take the boy under his wing. Is this latest gesture a softening that leaves Phil exposed, or a plot-twisting further into menace?”
