This is the second movie that Robert Redford has directed that was set in Montana and where one of the main characters has the surname 'MacLean'. The first one was A River Runs Through It (1992). However, this is purely coincidental, as the characters are derived from novels that were written by two different authors almost 20 years apart. See more »

Some of the most beautiful cinematography you will find
It is one of Robert Redford's best - the quiet rancher - meets the pushy high powered NYC editor who is determined to help her daughter after a traumatic riding accident.
As others have mentioned the experience not only changes the horse but most of the "supporting" characters.
The cinematography was powerful - while I am not a student of the discipline I could see that the angles chosen for the subject, the landscape scenes of the beautiful Montana ranges and sunsets - one could watch and understand the movie without the dialog.
I believe Ansel Adams - if he were alive - would love some of these scenes.
I vote this as a "must see" for everyone. It not only has a powerful plot but beautiful cinematography...
