Wonderful Surprise
14 January 2018 | by countryshackSee all my reviews

Well here was an unexpected candle in the night. Simple little plot; simple little theme, but comfortably carried you through the entire movie. There won't be any shimmery academy awards given but this movie is well worth the watch. Much better than I expected. Of course we had just finished watching a dog of a movie called Gold Star so my review of Wheeler could be a little biased. I will add, if you are a neurotic, nervous, hyper kind of a person you probably should just pass on this one. It will seem too slow for you. For the rest of the down to earth types, saddle up this horse. I think she's worth the ride.
