PG-13 | | Drama, Romance, Western
The mother of a severely traumatized daughter enlists the aid of a unique horse trainer to help the girl's equally injured horse.
After A River Runs Through It (1992), this is the second film directed by Robert Redford that was set in Montana and where one of the main characters has the surname MacLean. However, this is purely coincidental, as the characters are derived from novels that were written by two different authors almost 20 years apart.
Tom Booker removes the rope looped around Pilgrim's pastern, but when the horse is getting to his feet after being "rocked up" the rope is still looped. When Grace begins to ride him, the rope is once again off.
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.
