Dogville is a 2003 philosophical drama and mystery film written and directed by Lars von Trier, and starring Nicole Kidman, Paul Bettany, Lauren Bacall, Chloë Sevigny, Stellan Skarsgård and James Caan. It is a parable that uses an extremely minimal, stage-like set to tell the story of Grace Mulligan (Kidman), a fugitive hiding from mobsters, who arrives in the small mountain town of Dogville and is provided refuge in return for physical labor. Her stay there ultimately changes the lives of the community in more ways than one. The film is the first in Von Trier's projected USA - Land of Opportunities trilogy, followed by Manderlay (2005) and to be completed with Wasington.

 

The film was in competition for the Palme d'Or at the 2003 Cannes Film Festival but Gus Van Sant's Elephant won the award. It was screened at various film festivals before receiving a limited release in the US on March 26, 2004.
