Audience Reviews for The Rocking Horse Winner

  • Feb 04, 2009
    A young English boy discovers that he can help erase his mother's enormous financial debt by predicting winners at the race track. Its never really quite clear whether the young man's psychic ability to predict horse races comes from spirits within his home, his scary-faced rocking horse, or somewhere within his own mind. Regardless of it's origin, his "gift" proves to be no match for his mother's enormous greed. <center><div style="width:213px;"><a href="http://www.flixster.com/movie/the-rocking-horse-winner/photos?p=11482204"><img src="http://content6.flixster.com/photo/11/48/22/11482204_ori.jpg" border="0"/></a><div style="text-align:center;font-size:10px;"></a> </div></center> A dramatic morality tale with a touch of supernatural mystique thrown in for good measure, <i>The Rocking Horse Winner</i> is classic British drama that is part <i>Oliver Twist</i> and part <i>Twilight Zone</i>.
