The Digital Gym Cinema is giving you one last chance to watch the summer’s hottest indies before they leave San Diego for good! New titles added each week!

In Todd Solondz’s twisted and pitch black comedy, a cute dachshund puppy finds itself shuffled from one oddball owner to the next, including two couples, a grown-up incarnation of Dawn Wiener (Greta Gerwig) from WELCOME TO THE DOLLHOUSE, a screenwriter (Danny DeVito) and a bitter woman (Ellen Burstyn).

Synopsis: Welcome to the doghouse: the latest hilariously biting comedy from Todd Solondz is a twisted Lassie for misanthropes. It follows the wayward adventures of a dachshund who passes from oddball owner to oddball owner—including the world’s worst mom, a beleaguered screenwriter, and the grownup incarnation of Welcome to the Dollhouse’s Dawn Wiener—whose radically dysfunctional lives are all impacted by the pooch. Featuring an all-star cast that includes Greta Gerwig, Julie Delpy, Danny DeVito, Ellen Burstyn, and Zosia Mamet, Wiener-Dog is a tragically funny, wondrously warped look at the absurdity of life (and death) from one of contemporary cinema’s most fearless and unique voices.

Critic Quotes: “[...] lethally funny.” - Newsday
“…the most radical, angry achievement in Solondz’s career to date. And it might be his most pointed one, as well.” - IndieWire
“It's heavy material, but Solondz shapes it all into an epic joke about the folly of living a good life.” - Barry Hertz
“At a time when even niche films are virtually scrubbed clean of any traces of eccentricity, Solondz's downbeat vision of humanity is downright refreshing.” - St. Louis Post Dispatch
