While some movie-goers might roll their eyes at a film staring a precocious pup, there are certain movies that manage to overcome even this preference. Whether because they tell a great story independent of the canine character or because the dog in question is just that likable, some dog movies manage to win over even those who ordinarily couldn't care less.
It's hard to forget that dogs and wolves are very similar both in appearance and behavior, but sometimes people do forget. The original White Fang novel from 1906 does a stunning job of portraying the rough life of one lone wolfdog living in the Yukon. It's a century-old timeless classic, hence why there's no wonder that Netflix released an adaptation in 2018.
White Fang is a story about things that are inherent in most, if not all, people: freedom, courage, trust, and adversity. Something about how viewers watch the titular canine grow from a vulnerable puppy into a powerful, loved guard dog despite everything is sure to appeal to anyone regardless of origin.
