(2020) (Harrison Ford, Dan Stevens) (PG)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Drama: Various people impact the life of a sled dog during the Yukon gold rush of the late 19th century.
It's the era of the Yukon gold rush of the late 19th century and with powerful dogs that can pull sleds being at a premium, a large canine named Buck ends up stolen from his California home and shipped north. He ultimately ends up as part of the sled team owned by Perrault (OMAR SY) and Françoise (CARA GEE) who deliver mail to the remote and snowy environs of Canada's mostly untamed wilderness.
There are a lot of prospectors in that area, but John Thornton (HARRISON FORD) isn't one of them. With his marriage having failed following the death of his son, John is interested only in living a life of solitude, although he enjoys his brief encounters with Buck. The two are reunited when the mail delivery route is shut down and the dog sled team is purchased by Hal (DAN STEVENS), a mean prospector who doesn't take kindly to John offering advice or stepping in to protect the dog from abuse.
When Hal has had enough of the dog, Buck becomes John's companion as they set out further into the wilderness. But with Hal wanting revenge on John and Buck hearing the call of the wild as related to a pack of wolves he encounters, it's uncertain whether John and Buck's bond will persevere.
