Review
If the word "poignant" sends you running for the hills rather than the Kleenex, you'll probably want to avoid this. But if you want a good clean family weepie, this'll probably do nicely. Twelve year old Grace is involved in a horrific accident whilst riding her horse, in which she loses her leg while the beast loses its mind. So caustic career mom Kristen Scott Thomas ships the unhappy pair out of ugly Manhattan and heads for the beautiful Montana ranch of Robert Redford, apparently a master of equine rejuvenation. While Redford works his magic on both horse and child, a tentative romance develops between he and the hard-bitten Scott-Thomas. Lovely scenery.
