The Art of Racing in the Rain is in theaters on August 9th, 2019.

Denny Swift, played by Milo Ventimiglia is a race car driver who adopts a dog. The movie is told from the dog, Enzo’s perspective and is voiced by Kevin Costner. When Denny meets Eve, played by Amanda Seyfried, Enzo’s life changes as he adapts to the new family member and struggles to understand why.

The movie is based off the book of the same name. I generally try to avoid movies with animals as I’m way too emotional to handle that. This movie has some quippy humor and you can’t help but love Enzo. The funny parts help with the emotional aspects of the film but it was still a roller coaster.

I enjoyed the story and the acting was great. It shows a lot of struggles that Denny goes through and it’s easy to relate to what he’s going through.

If you go please don’t make the same mistake I did and bring your tissues!

Rating: 3.8 out of 5
