Bonin’ (2017)

A romantic comedy in the style of the 1960s French New Wave, Bonin’ follows the love affair between Boo and Zeik, two schnauzers who meet after their owners match on Tinder. With its tongue-and-cheek approach, Bonin’ tells the story of finding puppy love in an age of dating apps and casual hookups. Watch the film here.
