Here is the official synopsis of The power of the dog:
Adapted from a 1967 cult novel by Thomas Savage that was ahead of its time in describing repressed sexuality, The Power of the Dog excavates the emotional torment experienced on a Montana cattle ranch in the 1920s. Here, the brooding young widow Rose (Kirsten Dunst) has come to live with her sensitive new husband, George (Jesse Plemons), though their lives are increasingly complicated by the erratic and potentially violent behavior of her surly and harassing brother, Phil (Benedict Cumberbatch). ), whose distrust of Rose and her misfit son (Kodi Smit-McPhee) leads to tragic consequences. Reflecting the story’s unpredictable twists and turns, Campion creates a film of unexpected cadences and rhythms, and his audacity is combined every step of the way with his extraordinary and completely immersed cast and a fickle and destabilizing score by Jonny Greenwood.
