Movie Info

In the tradition of such timeless stories as My Friend Flicka, Black Beauty, and The Black Stallion comes this touching tale of friendship between a young girl devastated by the loss of her mother, and the young colt who gives her hope when all seems lost. Following the death of his wife in a tragic riding accident, Ford Lofton (Gabriel Byrne) sells the horse and forbids his two daughters from ever riding again. In a conscious and deliberate act of defiance, 13-year-old Virginia (Lindza Letherman) nurses the new horse's colt, Stormy, to health and secretly sneaks out at night to train him. When Ford decides to sell Stormy, it's up to Virginia and sympathetic trainer Jessie Eastwood (Joanne Whalley) to convince the stubborn father to allow his daughter room to learn and grow on her own.more

Audience Reviews for Virginia's Run

The title AND the fact that horses play a huge role in this movie enticed me to watch it today. Overall the acting is stiff, and the story isn't all that compelling, but I still watched it in its entirety. I have yet to watch a horse movie and believe the relationship between the horse and its human. It's all suggested and not believable. Oh well, I don't regret watching it, but don't think I'll watch it too many more times.
