Product Description

A twisted take on the traditional love story. Think Misery with all the self-affirmation of Buffalo 66. Philadelphia City Paper

... many intriguing twists... Variety

Attempting suicide, sultry but down-on-her-luck swindler Liz (Nadia Townsend) is rescued by lonely tow truck driver Aiden (Bernard Curry). But instead of rushing her to the hospital, Liz s savior abducts her to his remote farmhouse, convinced that she is the wife who abandoned him years earlier. Cut off from civilization, kept prisoner and guarded day and night by vicious attack dogs, Liz realizes she must rely on her skills as a con artist to talk her way out of this hostage situation.

In the satiric tradition of MISERY and BLACK SNAKE MOAN comes this captivating black comedy about the ties that bind.


Rejoices in its independent-ness by taking us on a wonderful journey. ---Efilmcritic.com

9 out of a 10. Galvin s film is a bizarre tale of obsession and love in its most twisted form... part thriller, part escape drama, but mostly a story about love. The performances from all involved are subtle and engaging. Bold, beautiful, and always entertaining. ---Hollywoodbitchslap.com

Nadia Townsend, a virtually unknown actress, shines in a strange Australian film about a depressed young woman taken hostage. The audience soon wonders who is controlling whom. --The Atlanta Journal

I watched this movie on Netflix and absolutely loved it. It sort of reminds me of "Hard Candy" in that it's a psychological flick and a struggle between a man and woman, but with enough romance and tenderness to have you rooting for both the good and bad guy.

Both characters are wounded in some way and they both take turns caring for each other. Plus, I'm the kinda girl that gets weak in the knees for the "manly man" type that's tough to the world but all mushy and soft when it comes to the one he loves.

I love how there is such tension between them that eventually turns into a timid friendship, then love.

The only thing that I was confused about is why the film is called "Puppy". Once in the entire movie, the anti-hero's ex-wife calls him "Puppy" but that was so insignificant and at the end of the story, so I don't see the rationale behind naming an entire movie for it.

Loved the ending of the movie. It was like a warm hug and a realistic "true love" story.
