| Stiff and awkward, but undeniably sincere
Orphaned American girl comes to stay with her aunt in England, who once was a famous horse rider when she was a child. Belated follow-up to Elizabeth Taylor's girlhood triumph "National Velvet" has an excellent cast: Nanette Newman is solid in Taylor's former role, now a grown woman living with her wily lover, Christopher Plummer, who is perfect; Anthony Hopkins is also superb as a stern taskmaster. In the lead, Tatum O'Neal, affecting a curious 'mature' façade, disappoints--odd considering the director was Bryan Forbes, who usually excels with child actors. The young star is far more convincing playing Sarah in her older teen years than as a schoolgirl, but this is counterproductive since the movie runs too long and wears out its welcome. Hardly a washout, but not the heart-tugging, tear-jerking family film it was intended to be. **1/2 from ****
