a timeless story that deals with the gritty moments of life
This movie views as fresh today as the year it was first aired. It has something for both adults and children, and hence makes great family viewing. Children dream of what they might become. For some it is cowboys, or ballerinas. The cynics would say these are popular culture stereotypes. But in this movie they are real characters, flaws and all.
It deals with the stuff of dreams, and the stuff of life. Dissolution/exhaustion with career, family, and the fragility of relationships. It also explores what happens when dreams hit reality, how things change over time as the main characters mature,and how two adults try and hold onto their dreams. When two strangers meet they are both at pivotal points in their lives, both personally and professionally. As Clay says to Natalia "Love isn't a strong enough word for it. sometimes I hate it! But... it's what I live for, you know?"
Features some great rodeo action, including bull and bronco riding by Lee Majors' character Clay.
