I have followed Flicka from when it was bring film. I was soo excited to read that it was being made - finally a new horse film!.
So when the release date came in sept i was over the moon - no more watching Tim McGraw music video! but sadly it never reached Cinema's near me so here i have been, waiting the DVD release until today!!!!!
I don't think I have ever been so excited to get a DVD and sat down and watch the entire thing!.
After watching I have to say I was really disappointed , why - mostly because I work with horses everyday and just kept thing " why is she doing that , why doesn't she do this.." etc but second time viewing I LOVE THIS FILM!!!.
I guess I had such high expectations it just seemed abit childish the 1st time around ( like all horse movies) but after re-watching I think its really good , some really good scenes . It really is a tear jerker and the cast are really good.
I think 3 amazing scenes are them *SPOILERS** capuring Flicka , Selling Flicka and The lion scene - that broke my heart!.
I don't get why this film has been so slamed , every film has its downsides sure but overall i think this film is amazing!!!
Two days later after seeing the film am still thinking about it ... and longing to live on a Ranch , ahh if only i was an american!
Do watch this film , you won't regret it! x
