This movie is not for kids--it is certainly not for a horse-crazy tween, like the focal character. In the very first chapter of the movie, she is in a very horrific and graphic accident that leaves her with a leg amputation, her horse with grisly injuries--and her best friend dead. My horse-crazy tween was full-out bawling. We hung on, hoping for redemption, but never got it. The girl does eventually get back on her horse, but in the meantime her mom considers leaving her dad for the horse trainer! My horse-crazy tween found this plot twist icky, and unbelievable. Plus the movie is just very, very looooong. I regret watching it.

A+ in artistry, especially in camera use. Beautiful story in human and animal (horse) emotion, displaying hard choices after a tragedy. The acting horse should receive an oscar.

Another wonderful movie by Robert Redford (actor/director/producer).
Has he ever done a bad movie?

Checked this DVD out on wife's request. I was skeptical, and apprehensive about the length. However was bowled over by the depth of emotion portrayed in understated fashion. I did not know Scarlett Johansson was a child actress - what a performance!

Waaaayyyyy toooooo looong.

This wannabee-movie was a career killer for Redford. I would rather take a bath in someone's-else vomit than watch this kind of garbage.

A movie the entire family will love. Robert Redford directs and stars as the horse whisperer. I can tell you that children will be captivated by the story of an injured child and the injured horse was riding. A remarkable movie with a great cast, especially Kristin Scott Thomas playing the injured child Grace MacLean. A five star winner for those of us who like stories about animals and humans.

One of the few most beautifully made among the more than 2000 movies I have watched! I just couldnot help but watching it again and, probably, again.
