The Horse Whisperer
1998
***½
Director: Robert Redford
Cast: Robert Redford, Kristin Scott Thomas, Scarlett Johansson, Sam Neill

An engrossing but long and occasionally heavy-going romantic drama about a busy career woman and her daughter who visit a horse specialist who they hope will be able to heal the girl’s traumatized steed. The story kicks off with a wonderfully staged and horrific riding accident. Based on Nicholas Evans’ novel.
