Summer Family Film

HACHI: Based on a true story that took place in Japan before World War I.  The film, starring Richard Gere, Karen Allen, and adorable Akitas, moves the setting to the United States where a music professor finds a lost Akita puppy.  Their relationship is so strong, that when the professor dies, Hachi spends the rest of his life waiting for him at the train station.  The movie is beautifully staged and it is a memorable story.  (Please not that there are several children's books about Hachi.)  Raged G.  (Tissues are recommended.)
