One to Watch: Sgt Stubby: An Unlikely Hero, Sky Cinema Premiere from today

This family animation (2018, Sky PG) from director Richard Lanni makes its debut on Sky Cinema Premiere from today with the voices of Logan Lerman, Helena Botham Carter and Gérard Depardieu.

The movie is the incredible true story of America’s top underdog. As the world prepares for World War I, a stray dog with a stubby tail wanders into the Yale University grounds where the 102nd Infantry Regiment are training. Taken in by young cadet Robert Conroy, the newly christened “Stubby” begins an adventure that finds him and his human friends in the trenches of France.

Through harsh conditions and incredible acts of courage, Stubby would become the first canine to be officially promoted to the rank of Sergeant in US army history – and this is his story.

Connie’s (Amanda Mealing) worst fears are realised when she comes back from her conference to find Ciaran (Rick Warden) has taken over her ED and her office. Everything important to her is slipping, and her nerves are impacting her work.

Connie helps Archie (Genisus Lynea) treat a patient, but when things take a turn for the worse Connie steps in but makes a mistake. Connie wastes no time in blaming the mistake on Archie, and with that loses an ally. Jacob’s (Charles Venn) attempts to reconcile with his mother are fruitless. But as Dylan (Will Beck) becomes increasingly concerned about Omo’s (Ellen Thomas) health, he cannot reveal anything to Jacob without Omo’s consent.
