I have not read the book, so I am going based on watching the movie alone. With a title of the dog's name "Sounder", one would expect the movie to be about the dog. However, this was not the case as the dog in question seemed to be more of a secondary character, albeit the story of the African American family. The movie had high and low points, but I was really hoping for was more dog-related scenes that fell flat. And what that poor dog went through, too!
