Zach Closs's rating of the film Quill: The Life of a Guide Dog

When a man's dog passes, he loses a good friend. When a dog's man passes, he loses his reason to live. "Quill" expertly explores this idea with very few digressions into the maudlin contrivances that plague films about animals. No voiceover, no CGI gums flapping. Just a crisply shot set of interwoven vignettes.
