If you’re looking for a heartwarming film to kick off your weekend — particularly one that features the work of a local attorney — look no further than "Mine," playing at 7 at the Roxie Theater in San Francisco.
Telling the tales of the people who rescued pets after Hurricane Katrina, the movie includes one storyline about an interstate custody dispute over a lovable Lab-Akita mutt named JJ, whose owner had to leave him behind when he fled the hurricane with family members. Steve Dye of the Schnader Harrison Segal & Lewis San Francisco office was instrumental in that story’s happy outcome.
The film has won admirers, taking the Audience Award at this year’s SXSW festival.
