Gentle story about teen's adjustment to life-changing event.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Apple of My Eye is the tale of a 15-year-old girl who loses her sight in a riding accident, her recuperation, and the adjustments she must make. The film is appropriate for mature older kids as the story unfolds softly, with no wrenching emotional outbursts or excessive sadness. The filmmakers have opted for the simplicity of portraying a teen and her parents dealing with unexpected heartbreak and challenges by taking positive action from the outset. There are sad moments, but those are always offset by life-affirming acts and a compassionate community. And, for animal lovers, a miniature horse and some beautiful dogs are center stage. An early scene shows the girl falling from the horse. (Spoiler Alert): A later scene finds a beloved animal in distress, but that is resolved happily within minutes. The film identifies a number of Southeastern U.S. social service, animal, and medical facilities.
