I adore this movie
14 January 2005 | by See all my reviews

First, let me say how much I adore this movie. As a child, I watched it at my grandparent's house more times than I can remember. As I've always loved horses and the old west, this was my favorite movie as a child, and it still holds great sentimental value to me now. I would highly recommend this to young and old alike. The acting is superb and the plot wonderful. My favorite part was always the bond between the boy and his horse, Red. I remember daydreaming on many occasions that I had a horse just like Red, and in truth I would still very much like to find one that looks similar. Truly this is an A+ movie. On a side note, if anyone has information of where I could go to purchase this I would be very grateful. Thank you. :-)
