fine family movie
15 May 2015 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Rick Chilton (Jeremy London) is serving time at Bancroft Boys Correctional Facility. Instead of transferring to prison at 18, he gets a chance at a horse riding camp for the blind run by Annie Sobel (Megan Gallagher). Head counselor Clay Nelson (Brian Krause) is not impressed. Lindsay Kurtz (Gina Philips) is a former gymnast struggling with her new blindness when she falls at a competition. Billy Rankin is silent. Brooke Kaufman is a counselor. Rick finds a connection with a horse being abused by his owner and brings him to the camp. Rick's former running mate Blitz promises to break him out.

This is a fine uplifting family movie. Jeremy London is a little too clean-cut for the role. He tries to be harden up as a delinquent with limited success. His boyish charms work well to win over little Billy and Lindsay. There are lots of lessons being learned by the characters. There is a real cliff hanger. It's all very nice and very sincere.
