Summer Abroad. Pacifist American mathematician David Sumner (Dustin Hoffman) gets a lesson in local customs when neighborhood thugs assault his wife Amy (Susan George) in their Cornish farmhouse. A politically explosive demonstration of the dangers of standing on the sidelines in a violent age, Straw Dogs remains controversial for the havoc it wreaks upon conventional notions of feminism, pacifism, and art.
