Todd Solondz’s offbeat and melancholy indie comedy movie Wiener-Dog will be released on DVD and Digital on January 23, 2017 via Picturehouse Entertainment.
Director Solondz resurrects Dawn Wiener, the awkward lead from his 1995 hit film Welcome to the Dollhouse – here, the character is played by actress Greta Gerwig. She appears in just one of four interlinked stories of American life, that connect an affluent suburban family, a frustrated screenwriting teacher, an elderly depressive and Dawn herself.
Alongside Gerwig, the cast features such named as Ellen Burstyn, Julie Delpy, Danny DeVito and Kieran Culkin.
Wiener-Dog had its world premiere at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival on January 22, 2016.
