A sad boy comes to live with his isolated, distant aunt in "Touching Wild Horses," a truly wonderful film starring Jane Seymour and Mark Rendall. On the island there are wild horses, which are not to be touched - and an aunt, it seems, who isn't to be touched either. Aunt and nephew learn to coexist, and ultimately to love one another and share their tragedies.
When the boy makes a mistake with a colt, the two must work together to make it right and teach the colt to live among the other horses, independent of humans. Conversely, the Seymour character has become independent of humans as well. In the end, all God's creatures need to learn their lessons and find out where their true strength really is.
Jane Seymour is wonderful as the tough, icy aunt. Normally a glamorous beauty, Seymour lets herself be seen as an older woman, her face weathered by nature. Mark Rendall is captivating as the boy who lost all but his mother in a car accident for which he blames himself, while his mother remains in a coma.
This is a wholly satisfying film in every way, not only the story and acting, but it has beautiful scenery and magnificent horses. Highly recommended.
