What do you think?
omgosh it's so bad. My husband bought it for me (in German, called Die Insel der Pferde "The island of horses") and it's one of those films that has very little to do with horses, and mostly describes a dysfunctional family. It's painful to watch; the main character verbally abuses everyone around her. The only thing good about it were the scenes from Orcas Island in my homestate. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0870101/reviews
Definitely fantasy. A farm-saving purse in a dressage competition? Hah ha hah ha ha.......
How many weeks does she have to accomplish this? I assume it would take more than a training level competition to save a house from foreclosure.
Marsha Mason starred in a movie The Long Shot where the horse is a GP horse but he "can't canter." Zac Efron is a wannabe jockey in another film with the embittered trainer who takes him on (because Zac's character's father hates the idea of his son riding horses). Zac, who rides with his hands up by his shoulders (and about shoulder wide) is "the most natural rider I've ever seen" according to the "embittered trainer"--and rides a chestnut toward the fence; cut to the legs of a bay landing on the ground. Can't find the name of the Efron movie--IMDB.com has changed the listings so you have to search for the filmography (by type, by year, etc.) and it's a cumberson process. Bottom line, The Dark Horse has its own genre. Good for laughs, but bottom line: Oh dear.
