I am ever so thankful I saw this movie as a child instead of an adult. Had I seen it at 30 instead of at 10, it would never have invaded my childhood daydreams the way it did. However, seeing it as an adult made me want to glorify the movie all the more. If you're above 20, then see it for the location shoots, music, cinematography, natural acting, minimal dialogue and the intensity of The Blac... read more

A wild horse saves a young boy’s life after a terrifying shipwreck and the two become unlikely friends in Carroll Ballard’s cinematic tour de force, adapted from Walter Farley’s classic children’s novel. From the crystalline shores of a deserted island to the green grass and dusty roads of 1940s suburban America, Ballard and director of photography Caleb Deschanel create a film of consistent visual invention and purity, one that also features a winning supporting performance by Mickey Rooney as a retired jockey and a gorgeous score by Carmine Coppola.
Release date: 17 October 1979
