Patrick is a 2018 British family comedy film directed by Mandie Fletcher, written by Vanessa Davies, Mandie Fletcher and Paul de Vos and distributed by Buena Vista International.

Plot[edit]

The film is about a young woman named Sarah, whose life changes when her grandmother bequeaths her prized possession, a spoilt Pug named Patrick.

Sarah recently moved into a new apartment with a no-pet policy and just got employed teaching grade 11 English.

She struggles to deal with both Patrick and discipline in her school. After a few incidents with Patrick, she finally connects with the students and really starts to connect with Patrick.

Patrick helps her to meet two potential love interests, one is a narcissistic vet and the other is a student’s father, Ben.

She loses Patrick, but then finds him waiting for her at the end of a 5km charity run (where she raised 1,000£ for a mobility scooter).

In the closing scenes, Sarah and Ben sail a boat down a river with Ben’s daughter on deck.

Release[edit]

The film was originally scheduled for an 24 August 2018 release, but in November 2017 the film was pushed forward to 29 June 2018 in place of the initial UK release of Ant-Man and the Wasp, which was pushed back to 3 August 2018 to avoid competition with the 2018 FIFA World Cup.[citation needed] The film opened at #8 in the UK, moving up to #7 the following week.[1]

In other countries, the film was released by various other distributors later in 2018. It received a limited release in the United States in February 2019 by Screen Media Films, grossing $6,290.
