Audience Reviews for Pit Pony

Nice made for tv movie, with a strong sense of place (Nova Scotia coal mines) and time (early 1900s). The story is fast-paced and does not pull its punches except, perhaps, for the very end. The acting is excellent and the message, of the need for families and communities to help each other through difficult times, is worthy. I especially liked the use of ethnic (Celtic) music in the soundtrack.
