Dogs have their day in White God, the Homeward Bound-esque tale with darkly politicized parallels that won the Un Certain Regard sidebar at Cannes and is eyeing awards gold as Hungary’s Best Foreign Oscar entry. Kornél Mundruczó wrote and directed the film about Lili (Zsófia Psotta), a girl who’s forced by the government to give up her mixed-breed dog Hagen. As the two begin a dangerous journey back toward each other, the unwanted and so-called “unfit” pooches rise up under Hagen to bite back against their human oppressors. Magnolia releases the pic stateside on March 27.
