Andrew Garfield, Mahershala Ali, Ruth Negga, and five others received their first-ever acting nominations for 2017. While these actors are new to the Academy Awards, you may recognize them from their earlier work.
It is a shame that this beautifully-shot little film only aired (once?) on the Animal network, but fortunately my kids alerted me.
This is an eye-opener when it comes to the history of horses in North America, the government slaughter campaign, and the big difference between the REAL Mustangs and the wild horses that we think of today. Great to know that these true mustangs still exist (thanks to a host of diverse and colorful real people still preserving them).
The letters of Frank Hopkins, read by Viggo Mortensen, are informative and reveal a man who really loved these horses and had a vision for their future.
Hope it comes out on DVD. A real documentary gem.
