Movie Info

When Derek, known to his friends as Dusty, comes home for the summer his family can't quite deal with his academic success. While his brother is the local hero, playing for Leeds United, Dusty is the wierdo who'll be the first person in the family to go to University. But Dusty finds friendship with a very special dog, Slapper, a greyhound who won't race... This endearing film for all ages takes us into the world of greyhound racing through the eyes of a young man on the brink of the adult world, but it's also about class and ambition, first love and true love and above all, about family. Based on real events this delightful comedy brings a host of eccentric and authentic characters into a heartfelt story that will ring true for everyone.

Critic Reviews for Dusty and Me

All Critics (7)

Beautifully staged in a 1970s northern town (apart from the Del Monte fruit cocktail which has far too many of those pink cherries), this is a sweet movie about a slightly misfit teen and his dog that won't raise any hackles except on a cat.

November 8, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

Like quite a few British feel-good films, it's nostalgically set in the 1970s; like even more of them, it's well meant but flimsy.

Simple but quite sweet.

October 1, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

It comes from a good place but what it makes up for in heart, it distinctly lacks in watchability.

September 28, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Retro costumiers across the country must have been ransacked for this 1977-set comedy. Unfortunately, no amount of bell bottoms and polyester shirts can disguise its lack of gumption.

September 27, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

It's a strange, gritless oyster of a film, more feelbland than feelgood.
