Plot Summary
Jerry (Will Stewart) has no job or home, and his unscrupulous nature has left him with few prospects for future success, but things change for him after he meets elderly Alma (Carol Gustafson) while she's taking a stroll with her dog. Alma falls and breaks her hip, and Jerry helps get her to the hospital. Alma's daughter, Helene (Stepfanie Kramer), then rewards Jerry by giving him a job as her mother's live-in assistant. But the rude Alma and her cranky pals soon make Jerry's life a living hell.

  • A pleasant enough little film. Jerry isn’t what one would call a sympathetic figure, but you find yourself cheering for him anyway. show more

  • There's an infectious, spry quality to much of The Dogwalker, an indie that benefits from amusing characters, strong thesping and taut situational humor. show more

  • This is, after all, a film in which no one leads life according to script -- but, then, that's also the reason it works. show more
