for Dumb Dog

Jury Citation

“‘What you don’t know won’t hurt you’ is the percolating theme in ‘Dumb Dog,’ a finely honed examination of a man avoiding his own emotional interior while helping others remove the toxins hidden in their houses.” — 2010 RBC Bronwen Wallace Award Jury (Trevor Cole, Susan Glickman, and Kathryn Kuitenbrouwer)
