Hachi: A Dog’s Tale

When his college professor master, Parker (Richard Gere), dies, a loyal pooch named Hachiko (Japanese for “faithful dog”) keeps a regular vigil — for more than a decade — at the train station where he once greeted the man every day. Lasse Hallström directs this touching drama based on a true story. Joan Allen stars as Parker’s wife; Sarah Roemer, Jason Alexander and Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa co-star.
