Mediocre At Best
31 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I didn't watch this movie with high expectations so I wasn't too disappointed but I feel like there was a lot of wasted potential. What could have been a touching story about reverence and respect for life, and healing after a tragedy turned into nothing more than animal rights propaganda. I found the acting from all parties to be quite unconvincing. The "troubled daughter" as it read on the back of the movie cover, was a sweet grieving little girl who made a few mistakes with the best intentions at heart. I was not raised on a ranch, but I have a hard time believing that animals are tossed aside and killed so quickly and completely without thought as in this film. For the younger audience this movie could possibly be enjoyable but let me put it this way, if I wanted to watch some kind of PETA film, I would have rented one.
