Ronnie Stray Dog Hall is a biker and a Vietnam veteran. Hardened by the war, he is shown hanging around with his friends at a trailer park, smoking, drinking. All around the place is biker-related imagery, guns, leather jackets and such – at least that is the stereotypical opening. Soon, the audience is to realize that there is more to Stray Dog than meets the eye. All from his eyes dripping of tears when he talks to his therapist, to showing his great love for small dogs, is the proof that you need, to see that things are rarely as they seem, people are more than they seem. Director Debra Granik rose to fame after having made the Academy Award-nominated indie masterpiece Winter’s Bone, which also won the Grand Jury Prize at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival. It was while shooting Winter’s Bone Granik met Hall, due to him playing a minor part in it.
