Gabriel Heckum: Buddy. Hey. What's with the grin, pal?
Young William 'Buddy' Heckum: Mr. Castillo said I did a good job. He even gave me an extra dollar.
Gabriel Heckum: Yeah? So, that's your first paycheck, pal. You never forget that.
Young William 'Buddy' Heckum: I told him to make it in three parts. For you, me, and Jakey.
Gabriel Heckum: Smart.
Young William 'Buddy' Heckum: Jakey gets the extra dollar, 'cause he's the youngest.
Gabriel Heckum: Well, that he is.
Young William 'Buddy' Heckum: Or I could get him a new violin.

Don't listen to the haters because it's a good movie
24 November 2015 | by deloudelouvainSee all my reviews

What actual makes me laugh when I read the reviews on IMDb is that most of the time movies with mediocre reviews are to me the best ones and movies with outstanding reviews I find them almost unwatchable. I don't know if it's me or if it is just the posh people that like movies from Lars Von Trier and David Lynch that review the most movies but I question myself if I have bad taste or what? I thought Broken Horses was a really good movie, with enough suspense to keep you interested during the whole movie. Unlike boring movies from Von Trier and Lynch where the story sucks big time and you kind of wish the movie ends as soon as possible. With this one I didn't get bored a second. Chris Marquette plays the mildly retarded brother brilliantly. I couldn't fail any of the actors actually. They were all good. The filming is also good and the story is also good. Everything about this movie is just good. Why it only gets such a low score on here is a mystery to me.
