Listed in the closing credits as 'equine technical advisor' is a man named Buck Brannaman. He's the subject of a 2011 documentary titled Buck (2011) which relates his own troubled past and how he became a 'horse whisperer'. In the Redford movie, there's a picture of Buck and his brother Smokie Brannaman in the montage of old family photos during a scene at the Booker home. It's the one with two young boys with Santa Claus; Buck is the boy on the left. See more »
Although the opening scenes are set in winter, Pilgrim has a light summer coat which is impossible at that time of year. In reality the scenes were filmed in May. 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 »
I liked this movie very much. A girl and her horse are both seriously injured in an accident. The girls friend died in the accident. With time and love, the girl and her horse eventually are healed, physically and emotionally. It is a good family movie.
