This makes [Pick of the Litter] the perfect family film - especially if you're looking for an antidote to Marvel and DC.

I've always wondered how guide dogs are trained and, now that I've seen the documentary Pick of the Litter, I'm still not quite sure. As deficient as it is in specifics, it's fairly enjoyable anyway.

"Pick" often feels like a project that has been overly groomed. Will you still be moved to tears? Most likely.
