Great Movie--a favorite
13 March 2004 | by brianna78See all my reviews

Maybe I am just sentimental, but I love this movie. I saw it when it first came out when I was about 13 or 14. It is a sweet story and Michael Schoeffling (playing Al Carver) is one of my favorite actors. He is no longer acting. I believe he quit his acting career to raise his family (which I think is commendable). The

storyline is interesting and romantic. I love horses and watching them dive is pretty phenomenal. I don't know how close it is to the true story, but it's

fascinating to watch Sonora (played by Gabrielle Anwar) overcome such

tremendous obstacles. It is a safe movie to show any child and most girls will like it if only because of the horses. Almost all of the characters are memorable and play their parts well. Well worth the viewing!
