Gorgeous, slow-paced '90s horse drama has mature themes.
September 28, 2012
Maintains a spiritual atmosphere and decent hold on personal problems, keeping the long journey to the cure compelling, with enough flashes of Heaven on Earth to bewitch even the most disengaged viewer.

Like Jaws, Carrie and The Bridges of Madison County, director Robert Redford's screen version of Nicholas Evans' smash bestseller has largely been deemed one of those rarities: a movie that improves on its source material.

Curl your cynical lip if you want, but there's a place for heartwarming, life-affirming, even weepy dramas.
November 8, 2007
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.

This has loads of craft and honor but never quite takes off.

We are not talking postmodern or even modern here, but the best kind of old-fashioned.

Robert Redford has done it again.

Despite its flaws, The Horse Whisperer is a marvel -- in its artistry, its love of place, and its tender regard for broken hearts.

The Horse Whisperer is a calculated heart-tugging machine, as soulless and efficient in its own way as Twister or Independence Day; instead of a 'thrill-ride,' it's a trip through the tunnel of love.

Tutors us in the art of slowing down, being present, and quieting the heart.

Redford is obviously a romantic at heart, and he brings a light touch to the erotic moments in the film.
