I’m not a very sensitive guy, and it is nearly impossible to make me cry, but god damn if anything to do with dogs doesn’t turn me into a baby… Megan Leavey is a biopic about a veteran named Megan Leavey and her IED sniffing dog, Rex. It follows them in the tours and hardships they go through together as well as the emotional turmoil afterwords that comes with trying to keep Rex. Not only was this a beautiful movie about their relationship and the bond they formed, but an accurate and very real depiction of war. I was a little concerned it would be too sugar coated and cheesy, trying to toy with my emotions, but it never stooped that low and it actually added to the feels I got out of it. All around Megan Leavey is a wonderful film, but don’t watch it unless you are comfortable with your tears.
