Not a bad movie, but rather predictable. Callie (Vinessa Shaw) has trouble with her mom, goes away for the summer, sulky and determined not to enjoy herself. Despite this, she is drawn into the training of a lively horse, along with an attractive ranch hand (Adam Beach). This territory has been covered before, in a much more interesting fashion, in the exceptional Australian film, The Man from Snowy River. However, that film is bit more mature, with more of a romance angle, whereas this one is tamer and more for teens. Bonus in Coyote Summer, in my opinion, in the inclusion of some Native American culture, when Callie goes with Rafe to his grandfather's birthday party. I had hoped for a bit more of that perspective in the movie and I think it would have been more appealing with it. Overall, the movie is worth watching, as long as you keep your expectations low.
