Directed by Jane Campion (who is one of only seven women to have ever been nominated for the Best Director Oscar), the movie sees Cumberbatch as Phil Burbank, a rancher who works alongside his brother, George (Jesse Plemons). When George meets a woman named Rose (Kirsten Dunst), the pair quickly become married and she moves onto the ranch, much to the annoyance of Phil. Yet, while Phil intimidates all those who meet him, he finds that there may be a softer side to himself he's never explored.
The Power of the Dog was released to Netflix just a few days ago, and it's already reached the number-one spot on the site's list of top movies in the U.S. It's currently sitting above other recent releases like Single All the Way and Red Notice.
