Movie Info

This family drama recounts the tale of a legendary silver stallion living deep in the most remote mountain ranges of Australia. Based on a novel by Elyne Mitchell, the film dramatizes many of the horse's personal experiences living in the high, mountainous regions of the state of Victoria. In the story, a wild silver stallion colt (Thowra quickly grows to adulthood and must replace his father as the leader of a herd of horses. Before assuming leadership duties, however, Thowra must find and defeat the stallion responsible for killing his sire. The beautiful and intelligent horse is desired by a ruthless mountain man, who is unable to capture it on his own and devises crafty and underhanded methods to do so. The Silver Stallion was originally titled The Silver Brumby in its native Australia; 'brumby' is Aussie for 'wild horse.' ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi

Audience Reviews for The Silver Stallion (The Silver Brumby)

I had zero expectations going into this film and was pleasantly surprised by the film. Russell Crowe is the face of The Man but he is not the main star here, the story is about the Stallion who torments him. This a family film that delivers for everyone and is a great addition to Australian cinema. The film is very poetic and grand, I was very surprised by the quality surrounding the story. I'm now interested in tracking down the book to find out how close it is to the film. The horses are real stars here and create something truly unique for Australian film, I'm just shocked I had not heard of the film before. 28-12-2017.
