Molly Shannon stars in "Year of the Dog," a movie about a woman, Peggy, whose life is centered on her dog, Pencil -- the cutest little beagle you've ever seen.
When Pencil dies Peggy goes off the deep end, big time.
Shannon's genius is her ability to play off-kilter characters, something she did to great success on Saturday Night Live. Here her Peggy is creepy, sad, funny, pitiful and believable all at the same time.
