It was a good movie and I enjoyed it. The acting was very good and the story line was a refreshing one. The challenge that the young girl was willing to face for her family was hearting. It was interesting to see how she learned to ride her mother's Friesian horse to enter in a dressage competion.
This movie did have dysfunctional-family issues and young-teens-in-love mistakes mentioned but I found it refreshing that at the end everything didn't miraculously work out brilliantly like you expect in this type of movie. I can't say anything more than that without giving it away -- but I actually found it refreshing. I would not consider it 'Christian' per se, though. And our 9 and 11 year olds did watch it with us. There's much worse happenings in the Old Testament.
My first impression: a very angry family. 2nd: stilted acting and much-needed editing, 3rd: 14 yrs ago one brother had stolen and (X-rated) the other's girlfriend, and married her. I did not enjoy stumbling upon this information (with my 10-yr old watching). I'd like to trust CBD to accurately review movies you offer. Please pull this one.
The opening music is a hymn; the rest of the movie made me feel yucky, dirty and I will not finish watching it. (Beautiful horse and scenery did not make me like this movie)
