I thoroughly enjoyed this Redford film which reminded me very much of his similar film Buck that I highly recommend. Yes, the Mustang population is a fact. Yes, the prisoner population is a fact. Seeing Mattias S. in a very different role/character revealed his acting ability to inhabit the character. Bruce Dern was excellent with the crusty old man.

I forgot to check the details if Buck Brannaman helped on the horse scenes. I could enjoy this film again in a few years.

Credit Robert Redford as Executive Producer with bringing a really fresh story to the screen. Think of it....A western movie directed by a French director with a French film production company. A movie without big box office stars. In my opinion, the star of the movie is a horse. A darn smart horse with quite a story to tell through the characters in the movie. Bruce Dern is especially funny as the lead cowhand at the stables. My wife and I both would have clapped if we had been in a multiplex theater!!

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.
