Warm-Hearted Flick That the Whole Family Can Enjoy
Yes, the movie is sugary sweet and predictable as heck, yet it's a film, in my opinion, that anyone in the family can enjoy. Wow! no explicit language, sex scenes, or violence in a movie these days. What is this world coming to?
The premise revolves around a teenage girl, Emma Bailey (Greer Grammar), who has fallen under the bad influence of some friends, and has been given community service at the Red Bucket Equine Reserve, in Southern California (an actual reserve which has rescued and rehabilitated over 300 horses to date).
Emma will grow to love the place and will form a special bond with the beautiful but temperamental horse Chance (a horse that was actually rescued at Red Bucket). However, the ranch is under constant financial stress and now things are getting quite dire. Thus, Emma and many others will do all they can to save it from being sold.
Grammar is solid in the lead role here, and Missi Pyle, Joey Lawrence, Christina Robinson, Jennifer Taylor, and Shanna Strong add well to the mix. The movie is written and directed by Anna Elizabeth James.
Overall, if you're looking for an action flick or a deep drama this is not it, but it's simply a feel-good light tale that anyone of any age might enjoy.
