From the off beat mind of Todd Solondz, who brought us the squirmingly funny Happiness and darkly comic coming of age tale Welcome to the Dollhouse, comes another witty film of grandiosely unsettling proportions.
Wiener-Dog is the story of an ordinary dachshund who is passed around four not so ordinary owners, including characters played by Danny Devito, Greta Gerwig and Ellen Bustyn. Reviews so far have been fantastic with the Guardian giving it 4 stars and rogerebert.com 3.5 out of 4.
To celebrate the release of the film, Rookwood Bar & ‘Cue have created "The Nacho Wiener”, a foot-long Wiener topped with BBQ pulled pork, crushed tortilla chips, nacho cheese sauce, pickles and jalapenos, served with house slaw and beef dripping chips. Just typing that out is making us slobber like hungry mutts!
Better yet, anyone with a Wiener-Dog ticket or FACT Member’s Card can get 2-4-1 on The Nacho Weiner and Burgers Monday to Friday until 25 August.
