A young American mathematician, David Sumner (Dustin Hoffman), and his English wife, Amy (Susan George), move to a Cornish village, seeking the quiet life. But beneath the seemingly peaceful isolation of the pastoral village lies a savagery and violence that threatens to destroy the couple, culminating in a brutal test of Sumner's manhood and a bloody battle to the death. One of the most controversial films ever made, Sam Peckinpah's Straw Dogs is a harrowing and masterful investigation of masculinity and the nature of violence.
