Print this article Films featuring animals aren't just for kids. Fans of the dog dramas "Lassie" and "Old Yeller" will get a kick out of "Hachi: A Dog's Tale."
Starring Richard Gere, Joan Allen and "Seinfeld" funnyman Jason Alexander, the movie tells the story of a loveable canine and his devotion to his master. This American flick is a remake of the 1987 Japanese hit "Hachiko Monogatari."
Hachi is a dog who has been rescued by an aging college professor. The pooch accompanies the scholar to and from the train station each day.
Sadly, the professor eventually dies - but the loyal Hachi continues his tradition. Through the years he touches the hearts of town locals and teaches them about love.
The plot is based on a true-life story. In Tokyo, Japan, there is even a statue erected in tribute to the original dog.
Gere most recently starred in "Amelia" with Hilary Swank, while Allen will be playing the title character in the upcoming release "Georgia O'Keeffe," a bio-pic about the famed artist.
