It's been a long time since I've watched a film this good. A heartfelt and strong story of friendship, coming-of-age, change, courage, loyalty, and so many other themes tied in together. The scenery and animal filming was absolutely perfect, the music brought everything to life, simply nothing was done wrong in this film. Perfect to watch with your family, or just when you're down-spirited. Hope to see more amazing movies from Carroll Ballard.
