I am only giving this movie a 1 for the great cast, though I can't imagine what any of them were thinking. This movie was horrible

Fanciful, disturbing, and wildly original, it announces the arrival of a fresh, bold voice in American cinema.

A movie that not only functions as a solid scarefest but a razor-sharp satire.

An old-fashioned movie made with new-fashioned finesse.

The film is epic and is well done but now it comes out as predictable and outdated. Even worse, Redford get the girl with #metoo moves that are now revolting. Scarlett is acting great and Kristin is stunningly good-looking in this. But at the half point I hit on the accelerate to get to the end faster. Long.

Sometimes people carry wounds more on the inside than outside. Beyond the reach of a doctor's knife, skill or medicine, or despite them, despair and gloom consume hearts. This is the case for both a girl and horse, Grace and Pilgrim, who barely managed to survive a tragic accident together. Even though Pilgrim appears beyond help, Grace's mother Annie is determined to see to his recovery. She hopes the horse will help make Grace happy again. Annie reads of a mysterious horse healer in Montana who sees into troubled souls and soothes inner wounds. Soon Annie, Grace and Pilgrim are headed across the country in a desperate bid to hire this horse whisperer and rebuild their lives.Montana with its big sky, spectacular snow-capped mountains and resplendent Yellowstone River valley bathed in moonlight, is one of the stars of the film. Other stars, both rising and established, include Robert Redford (the horse whisperer), Kristin Scott Thomas (Annie), Scarlett Johansson (Grace) and Sam Neill (Annie's husband). Redford is in his element. He carries the film with his rugged Western charm, folksy wisdom and wry humor. The connections he establishes with the other characters seem real. Much of the satisfaction of this film comes from its compelling themes; determining strengths and weaknesses, recovering from tragedy, rebuilding trust, the power of nature and good people in the healing process, the importance of patience and providing space for those in need, human sympathy with animals, and more.

I had high hopes. Right from the outset the treatment of the teen's disability and her response was unbelievable. The parents were poorly acted and the relationship not credible. Full of clichés.The Redford character - the whisperer - was without interesting dialogue - ridiculous aphorisms spouted from his mouth.The ranch family was so clichéd as well. The little boy simply could not act.Just a completely silly movie where you could not care about any of the characters.

I had always dodged this movie, I think I still associated Robert Redford with what I thought were self-indulgent movies in the late 70s -80s. He never entirely gets away from being smug, but if you can deal with that this movie has a lot going for it. Scarlett J and her horse are involved in horrific accident which leaves both of them physically and psychologically scarred. Her mom Kristen Scott Thomas (always fine) tracks down horse whisperer Redford in Montana or thereabouts, and when he refuses to see them in NY she travels to his turf, Scarlett, damaged horse and all. Redford's family are nicely played, and there are tons of beautiful scenery where Robert calls home. What I liked best about this movie was the slow but persistent pace, along with the scenery and beautiful music. I would have played out the potential love interest between Redford and Thomas differently, but I really think the story is in the Redford-horse-Scarlett angle anyway. Much better than I anticipated.
