Debuting on Digital September 13

CULVER CITY, Calif. (August 29, 2016) –Writer-Director Todd Solondz (Happiness, Welcome to the Dollhouse) assembles an all-star cast for the critically-acclaimed, episodic drama, WIENER-DOG,debuting on digital September 13 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. An official selection of the 2016 Sundance Film Festival and “Certified Fresh” on Rotten Tomatoes, the dark comedy follows a dachshund passed along from one oddball owner to another, each one more dysfunctional than the last. The cast includes Academy Award® winner Ellen Burstyn (Best Actress, Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore, 1974), Kieran Culkin (Igby Goes Down, “Fargo”), Julie Delpy (Before Sunset trilogy,Avengers: Age of Ultron), Danny DeVito (Batman Returns, L.A. Confidential), Greta Gerwig (Maggie’s Plan, Mistress America), Tracy Letts (The Big Short, “Homeland”) and Zosia Mamet (“Girls”).



From director Todd Solondz, WIENER-DOG is a dark, starkly funny story of a single dog and the many different people she touches over her short lifetime. Man’s best friend starts out teaching a young boy some contorted life lessons before being taken in by a compassionate vet tech named Dawn Wiener. Dawn reunites with someone from her past and sets off on a road trip. After leaving Dawn, Wiener-Dog encounters a floundering film professor, as well as an embittered elderly woman and her needy granddaughter—all longing for something more. Solondz’s perversely dark comedy offers an appallingly honest look at the American experience, brought to life by its all-star cast.

WIENER-DOG was written and directed by Todd Solondz, produced by Megan Ellison and Christine Vachon and executive produced by David Hinojosa. 

WIENER-DOG has a run time of approximately 88 minutes and is rated R for language and some disturbing content.
