Midnight Stallion - DVD Review

DVD Synopsis:

A charming, coming of age story, Midnight Stallion centers on a young girl and her family who are rescued from their financial struggle by an unexpected guest. This inspirational family film stars Kris Kristofferson (Joyful Noise, Dolphin Tale), Jodelle Ferland (The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, ParaNorman), and Chelah Horsdal (Rise of the Planet of the Apes). Jack Shephard (Kristofferson) and his wife have tried just about everything to stay afloat through tough economic times. As they struggle to find new ways to keep their farm from foreclosure, their daughter Megan (Ferland) discovers a mysterious, wild stallion in a nearby meadow. Quickly forming a bond with the horse, Megan and her family soon realize that this fast and free companion could be the answer to their prayers. Celebrate the power of courage and determination when Midnight Stallion races onto DVD March 5. Featuring a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the film, the DOVE Foundation approved film will be available for the suggested retail price of $14.93.

My Review:

I think horses are pretty but I don't have a strong interest in them.  With that said, I enjoyed this movie that tells of a teenage girl and her family who are in dire financial straits and come across a wild stallion that becomes an answer to their prayers.  The dynamic between the family is strong and the characters are persuasive in making you be drawn into the storyline and root for them.  The plot is predictable, but this is a pleasing film for the entire family.

I received DVD for review.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.

This sounds like a movie my sister would enjoy; she's loved horses her whole life (I remember enduring the movie Black Beauty at least 100 times in my youth).

It sounds like an interesting movie for sure :)
