is performing poorly at the box office, and I can’t help but wonder how many more horse films Hollywood will churn out before someone learns a lesson. Sure they get a lot of critical praise, but the public at large doesn’t relate, and the ticket receipts reflect that. Remember Seabiscuit
? For the amount of critical praise it received, you would think that the film would have earned twice as much as it cost. It didn’t. Why? — Because no one wants to see a horse movie. And what about The Horse Whisperer
? Yes it made a respectable amount of money, but it under performed. There’s only one movie which involved horses that I thoroughly enjoyed, and it’s not National Velvet
. It was a little movie called Wild Hearts Can’t Be Broken
. Anyone heard of it?
