A good movie to inform viewers about the mustang problem and how it is dealt with. I never knew there was an over population of these horses.

Beautifully filmed, if a little slow and perhaps pretty unrealistic.

I enjoyed this movie more than I thought I was going to. The acting is great. The story is a bit slow but the acting kept me interested.

This is a startlingly superb movie with incredible performance by the main actor and others, excellent directing and great cinematography, costumes, sets and everything. No special effects; just pure human talent in front of the camera.

This is a drama so do not expect fast actions. It's about human emotions that are based on true events. Surprisingly for me, one of the best movies I've ever watched.

I really liked this movie,but I really like horses. I suppose when you learn to put someone other than yourself first, learn a bit of patience and tolerance you can't help becoming a better person. Animals will do that for you.

I found this movie to be quite slow. I managed to watch all of it but I had a hard time keeping my attention on it

I really enjoyed this movie. No fancy CGI or pumped up special effects. Bruce Dern for his age was pretty good in it too. Nice to know the American Mustang has not been forgotten and that people incarcerated are helping them in their training. It's a win, win situation for both involved.

When I was young I trained horses and the techniques they used were not typical of real horse training. One summer when I was 19 I drove down to Madras Oregon and bought two wild horses off the indian reservation. They had not been handled by anyone yet and I kept them in a stall and worked them in a small corral. Took only 6 weeks to have them ready to sell as nice gentle horses. Took lots of contact with them but they came around fairly easy. Most movies I see that have anything to do with wild mustangs show them to be be a lot nicer looking than they really are. This movie displayed behavior not displayed by horses nor were a lot of the sound effects realistic. I felt like the Doctor who was watching a medical show on television and saying to my self that behavior does not go on at any hospital I have been in. However the central theme that men working with horses can change their behavior is a good one and very possible. Horses are a nice animal to be around and most people who work with them are good people.

Matthias Schoenaerts is so good in this. Please seek this out if you haven’t seen it. Such a great character study.
