Long but entertaining family drama.

I'll admit that I didn't expect much from "The Horse Whisperer". Even though I had seen (and greatly enjoyed) Redford's earlier directorial attempts (Ordinary People, A River Runs Through It, Quiz Show), this just seemed to be a very ordinary and cheesy 90s drama. While it does have moments that are a bit over-done, it is quite touching and inspiring. I particularly enjoyed the character played by Scarlett Johansson, which was quite unusual and well-thought-out for the character of a teenage girl. Robert Redford is not only brilliant as the title character, he gives the full force of his directorial talents to this picture, and it shows. Coupled with the truly flawless cinematography of Robert Richardson, this is one of the most fantastic-looking films I have ever seen. I must recommend …
