What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that The Horse Whisperer is a 1998 movie based on the Nicholas Evans novel of the same name. It depicts an accident that kills a girl and her horse and seriously injures another girl and horse. Those deaths and injuries inform all aspects of the rest of the nearly three-hour story. The surviving girl and horse both undergo gentle but firm therapy, and the famous Robert Redford-directed piece epically covers their slow and painful progress with beauty and eloquence. Profanity includes "s--t," "hell," "damn," "Jesus," "Christ," and "SOB." Finding one's place in the world, letting go, and the nature of love are all themes, which lead to a married woman deciding if she values her family above her personal needs.
