Rex is based on the true life story of a young Marine Corporal named Megan Leavey, whose unique discipline and bond with her military combat dog saved many lives during their deployment in Iraq. When she is assigned to clean up the K9 unit after a disciplinary hearing, Leavey identifies with a particularly aggressive dog, Rex, and is given the chance to train him.

Flicks Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

An under-the-radar film, not widely known but screened on recommendation. Well received by our audience despite reservations about potential upset at animal harm, needless concern despite film featuring wardog Rex in action. Ultimately a truly inspiring film, well worth investing two hours of your time watching.
