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 »

This is a unique, moving story about a girl whose tragic horse-riding accident and subsequent trauma led her family to Montana in search of the man known as the Horse Whisperer. Little did they know that their lives were about to change forever during these few, memorable days spent on the farm. This is a truly beautiful story, a story for sensitive souls, a story for those who care about animals as much as people. The characters are finely drawn and it is a pleasure to watch them unfold as the film progresses. The dialogues are often memorable and wonderfully devoid of the clichés that most Hollywood productions are sprinkled with.
This is a film for people who understand that the 'little' moments in life are the best; a film where pictures truly speak more than a thousand words.
It is a story of love and courage, the courage to fight for you want, or accept things the way they are; the courage to risk losing everything, the courage to accept that loss. There is a wonderful message in this film for all of us - for all those who care enough to see it, that is.
