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.
In the book, Pilgrim is dark bay, rather than chestnut, and a Morgan horse. Gulliver (Judith's horse) is the chestnut.
When Gulliver falls, it is clear that he damages his fetlock (ankle) badly. Once he is on the road his fetlock seems to be fine.
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.
