This is one of three films in which Sam Neill appears that is related to Montana. In The Hunt for Red October (1990), his character reveals his dream to see Montana and in Jurassic Park (1993) he is working in an dinosaur excavation in the state at the beginning of the film. See more »
When Grace first wakes up in the hospital there is a close-up of her face and a cloth or bandage can be seen on her forehead. On the revealing shot, there is nothing there and Annie is seen grabbing a cool cloth and placing it on Grace's forehead. See more »
The film formats the early scenes at a 1.85: 1 aspect ratio, and the Montana scenes at a wider 2.35: 1 aspect ratio. The Blu-ray release keeps everything at a 2.35: 1 aspect ratio, because if one tried to reproduce both aspect ratios on a Blu-ray, the picture would get smaller during the Montana scenes instead of wider. The screen on an HDTV cannot expand. See more »
Redford and the entire cast is excellent. The music and scenery is excellent. Saw this movie for the first time three years ago. I rented it due to the "horse" plot and it ended up being a very important movie in my life. I was involved in some very personal problems with my family at the time. What was important to me was that even with the terrible situation Grace was in, there was a way to heal. The most important line in the movie was when Tom Booker makes the comment: "Knowing it is the easy part, saying it out loud is what's difficult" Oh how true this is. A lot of good thoughts in this one. It has my highest recommendation.
