Visual impaired people, a horse, a juvenile delinquent and love.
Simple story line: 17 year old boy gets into trouble, convicted, ends up in horse camp where blind children reside, meets blind girl, falls in love. Does not sound too good. We are also told we need to say visual impaired vs. blind.
I would recommend this movie for a class of 14 years old to see what can happen when someone gives up a crime career and finds happiness with horses and a blind girl. :-) I don't have to tell you there are bad guys, who try to get the hero back to street life, or the "right" guy who challenges him at the camp.
Too nice, too good, only remarkable acting by Adam Wylie, then 11 years old but acting as an 8-9 year old boy. Fun to watch with the kids. Rainy afternoon movie.
Good work for the horse trainers on the set! Ghost, the horse steels the show and Jeremy London tries to look like Tom Cruise.
