Dogville (19-May-2003)

Director: Lars von Trier

Writer: Lars von Trier

Producer: Vibeke Windelřv

Keywords: Drama

A young woman on the run from mobsters attempts to find shelter in a curious Colorado town.

Told in nine "chapters" with an extremely rudimentary set recalling a stage production rather than a feature film, Dogville follows the story of Grace Mulligan, a charming -- if distant -- young woman on the run from mobsters for an unspecified transgression offered shelter by Tom Edison, Jr., an aspiring writer and resident of the hard-up town of Dogville, Colorado. Given a chance to "prove" herself as a good person by the seemingly well-intentioned Tom, Grace must demonstrate her character through various niceties and other acts of kindness to every member of the community over a period of two weeks if she is to stand a chance at staying in the area for good, though snatches of Dogville's peculiar past and sinister secrets begin to break through and threaten the integrity of her endeavor as the days wear on.
