Alicia Silverstone (“Clueless”) and Ryan Kwanten star in “Who Gets the Dog,” a romantic comedy about a just-about-to-be-divorced couple who cannot decide on who gets custody of their beloved dog Wesley. Is it possible that humankind’s best friend can find a way to reunite the couple? The film also features Amy J, Carle, Randall Batinkoff and Rachel Cerda, and is directed by Huck Botko. The film is set in Chicagoland, and the filmmakers will attend a post screening discussion.
