My wife and I saw this film at The Savannah Film Festival. Although having no expectations, we loved the film from the start. You actually care about the people and the horses, and it takes you on an emotional journey. I don't even like horse racing, but it is so well done that the horse racing is only a vehicle for the talented construction of this film.
You don't get lost for an instant, and you want to know what will happen next. It brushes upon the technicalities and behind-the-scenes work that goes into the theme of the movie, without becoming annoyingly too "in-depth". The bonus is that we learned something...a good thing to happen each day of our lives.
We weren't surprised that the film was an award-winner at the Festival. Well worth watching. I hope it is put on wide distribution so that everyone can see it.
