About the Movie

Whitney, a spoiled pre-teen from Philadelphia, is forced to move to the country when her parents feel the squeeze of economic hard times. A fish out of water, far from her comfort zone, she befriends an amazing horse, and undertakes a misguided journey back to her old life, only to discover that her family is her home.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: As she learns the value of public schools and pickup trucks, her erstwhile friends in Philadelphia seem happy to be rid of her. By movie's end, you'll feel exactly the same. – Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, Nov 10, 2011

Rotten: Helmer Odiorne creates a suitably groomed pastoral setting for Gilchriest's relentlessly upbeat script, but does little to suggest a context larger than Whitney's limited p.o.v. – Ronnie Scheib, Variety, Nov 10, 2011

Rotten: It flies off the rails in a third act so devoid of logic it could have been concocted on the moon. – Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times, Nov 10, 2011

Rotten: Mild tween fare that would have been more at home on the small screen. – Michael Rechtshaffen, Hollywood Reporter, Nov 9, 2011

Great eye opener for the humdrum of drama, horror

And suspense. Funny, and nice learning experience for the young

Delightful movie captures the joy of horses and kids

This is a delightful movie. Anybody who has done horses and kids will like this movie. Bob the horse is a delightfully well trained trick horse. THis movie tries and partly succeeds at expressing the joy of having a horse for a friend.


I loved this movie it was the best movie I have ever watched. It is awesome
