Barry Crimmins mentored Bobcat Goldthwait when they were up-and-coming comics in the 80's. 'Call Me Lucky,' directed by Goldthwait, details their relationship – and the sexual abuse Crimmins suffered as a child. Animal trainer Teresa Ann Miller is used to working with furry performers, but she says the Hungarian film 'White God' was especially challenging. 'This wasn't necessarily a film with an animal in it,' Miller tells Fresh Air's Terry Gross. 'It was a dog leading the film and telling the story.'
