I watched the movie with a 13, 10, 5, 64 and 65 year old...and it was enjoyed by all. The kids were entranced with the horse and racing, of course, but also loved the way the Dad and little girl's relationship improved. They loved watching the little girl take the lead in working hard to make a dream come true and understood how this helped heal the relationship between the father and grandfather as well.
It taught us "older" children to remember our dreams and still fight for them and to remember to instill dreams in our children and help them grow into working for those dreams and following them.
As in life, there are some harsh scenes that made the young ones cry and ask, "is she going to die"...scary, sad scenes about scary, sad things that happen, so parents and grandparents, be prepared to help.
I would definitely buy this product again and recommend it for others. The casting was great. Dakota Fanning had good "attitude" and Kurt Russell and father, Kris Kristofferson looked and acted like they were father/son in real life. The fact that this story was inspired by a true story makes it even better.
Definitely a movie for my library!
Still this is one of those very fine movies that are great lessons for a young person and that adults too love.
The cast is as good as it gets and of course this is Dakota Fanning when she as a young girl she could dominate the screen no matter who she was acting with. She may become a star yet as an adult but she is now immortal in her many child roles by the power of her spirit and strangely powerful natural acting skill. Here she is rather reserved... but the relationship with her dad comes off all the more truthful because of it.
