Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Riding Tornado is a slow-paced tale focused on a depressed college student and his healing relationship with a horse. While too slow and serious for many tweens and teens, animal lovers might enjoy the meditation on the bond between human and animal. Parents main concerns might be a scene early in the movie where characters down shots of hard liquor, and another scene where the main character punches a mirror and smashes his head against his dorm room wall. Also early in the film, a horse is shown with bloody wounds.
