After a failed attempt at prostitution, Ellie wakes up in a public park and meets Betsy (Pamela

The Dogwalker boasts a scruffy underdog charm, but sometimes that just isn't enough.

Gaidry has no real character to play and brings little of her own spark to a desultory character study.

Though Thelemaque's creation is not exactly an undiscovered gem, it boasts a gritty realism that makes you want him to finish more movies.

Overall story arc is fairly predictable, and deliberate pacing sometimes risks dullness.

Rather than being self-indulgent or pretentious, however, the film comes up with many believable details and changes in direction that enrich the bittersweet central relationship of the two leads.

The sort of movie that you'd see on Lifetime if that channel actually respected its viewers' taste and intelligence.

Modest but compelling tale of a victimized woman looking for a life free of pain and abuse.

With a story inspired by the tumultuous surroundings of Los Angeles, where feelings of marginalization loom for every dreamer with a burst bubble, The Dogwalker has a few characters and ideas, but it never manages to put them on the same path.
