Critic Consensus: It might be a bit too eager to tug the heartstrings, but The Horse Whisperer is typically graceful, well-crafted Redford -- on both sides of the camera.

Critic Reviews for The Horse Whisperer
Directing himself for the first time, Redford has lavished his usual meticulous care on popular material that comes alive on the screen in ways that it never could on the page.
We are not talking postmodern or even modern here, but the best kind of old-fashioned.
That lack of identifiable passion is The Horse Whisperer's most vexing problem.
Audience Reviews for The Horse Whisperer
Lets see... I enjoyed the acting - including a young Scarlett Johansson. The story is good. Scenery is wonderful. I took off a star as the movie was an hour too long - especially if you are watching it on TV with commercials.
Lots of people don't like this movie, but I've always been a sucker for a tear jerker drama film, and this is one of them. Redford's always been both a great actor and director. This is the first movie I think of when I think of him as a director. Awesome story (it'd be even better if she'd stayed with Redford!) and perfect setting and scenery.
A young Scarlett Johansson plays a good role in a story that has more depth to it that the title suggest. It does essentially lead to a love story, but the film is very long and the love story is not the main plot.
With likable characters and stunning scenic views, The Horse Whisperers is a watchable lengthly, but not one, I would demand people to watch.
