Goofs

When Sonora introduces herself to Dr. Carver and he tells her to leave, she stubbornly anchors herself to her chair twice. The first time she is shown from behind as she wraps her feet around the chair legs then grips the seat with her hands. Then the close up shows her already gripping with her hands and then wrapping her feet. See more »

Best Movie you'll ever see!
5 November 2001 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

This movie is one of the best ones i have ever seen! Gabrielle Anwar is the best person for the part, the horses are great and whoever said that Michael Schoeffling can't act is CRAZY!!!! he very, very fine! He is the most fine guy in the movie business! But this movie is a must-see and i am surprised I havent replaced my old copy! I love it!
