Not an Oscar winner, but still a nice film
15 February 2006 | by metilleySee all my reviews

No one else has commented on this film so I will. "There Must Be A Pony" has an award winning cast about a recovering woman (Elizabeth Taylor) who has suffered from mental illness from years in the movie industry. She is trying to get back into the "business" but her reputation and her attitude prevents her from doing so.

After her son (Chad Lowe) comes for a visit at their rented home in Malibu, she meets up with Robert Wagner after being introduced at the horse track by another close friend, Mickey Rooney. Lowe is befriended by Wagner and a strong friendship develops. James Coco plays her confidante and best friend. It is a sweet movie with excellent acting, but it has a sad ending.

This film should DEFINITELY be available on DVD. I think it is a shame that it isn't (yet).
