Running Free is the adventurous, inspiring story of a remarkable friendship between a boy and an abandoned young colt named Lucky. In an African mining town, an orphaned servant boy raises a young horse who is destined for a life of hard labor. Together they find the strength to stand up to the cruel plantation owner and his mean-spirited thoroughbred Caesar; fleeing the destruction of the escalating war, they chase after the freedom they deserve. Narrated by Lukas Haas (Witness, Mars Attacks!) and starring Jan Decleir (Character, Antonia's Line), Arie Verveen (The Thin Red Line), as well as Chase Moore and Maria Geelbooi in their big-screen debuts, Running Free is a visually stunning, unforgettable tale about the triumph of the human - and equestrian - spirit.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Running Free is the only evidence anyone will ever need to demonstrate what a ruinous trend wallpapered narration has become.
Rotten: Until we really know what animals are thinking, it's probably best to leave talking animal stories in the care of comedic filmmakers.
Rotten: Saddled with actor Lukas Haas, who delivers a lifeless first-person-or first-horse-narration.
Rotten: This movie might have been more persuasive if the boy had told the story of the horse, instead of the horse telling the story of the boy.
I love this movie! the story of a boy who loves a horse the they're separated then reunited!!!!!!! in my opinion... It's AWESOME!!!!
Good family movie
This movie is a great choice for animal lovers. Although slightly cliche, It is a great family movie about friendship. The only thing I would say about it is that the story line isn't very well put together.
Wow absolutely an amazing movie! I cried so hard!! I totally recommend this movie!!
