description

WINTER’S BONE director Debra Granik's stereotype-shattering documentary STRAY DOG focuses on Ron "Stray Dog" Hall. At first glance, this burly, bearded biker looks like the ultimate badass. Then, through Granik's sympathetic lens, we begin to see his big, battle-scarred heart. The movie follows Stray Dog as he caravans on his Harley from his rural Missouri home to Washington, D.C. to pay tribute to his fallen brothers at the Vietnam Memorial. Back home, he takes in his Mexican wife and her two sons, who are, like him, struggling to find a place in a country that has become foreign.
