The Power of the Dog, starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons will be among the gala screenings at the BFI London Film Festival in October.
The film, directed by Jane Campion, is based on the 1967 novel by Thomas Savage and sees Cumberbatch play a ranch owner whose brother (Plemons) unexpectedly marries a young widow (Dunst).
“I am thrilled to share The Power of the Dog at the LFF,” Campion said. “It will be an honour to be there along with so many of my British team members, large amongst them the brilliant Benedict Cumberbatch who is the broken heart and dark soul of this story.”
The film will screen at the Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall on 11th October. Campion and key cast are expected to attend.
Tickets for LFF 2021 go on sale on 20th September.
