There's a Disney movie in here somewhere, but Clermont-Tonnerre has no interest in it. She's too busy steering her own course, and it works.

The Mustang is hard to look away from and worthy of praise. It's a gorgeous look at a man who finds the best version of himself in his relationship with a wild horse.
