fantastic Canadian movie
20 December 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

We just watched it tonight for a family dinner together and we loved it. There's so little on TV telling globally enjoyable Canadian stories to ourselves and the world, and based on a True Story to boot no less, The Horses of McBride is doubly fantastic for all that. Definitely 5 star annual Xmas time classic story, or for any time of the year. We say Excellent work telling that story to all the film people involved, and to the actual real people who did it, even more so. Don't want to give away any details here to spoil it for anybody, though reading the online descriptions probably says as much as that it is a very warm happy story/movie through-out, very inspiring for all ages, and left us feeling very good.
