Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that The Horse Whisperer is a 1998 movie based on the Nicholas Evans novel of the same name. It depicts an accident that kills a girl and her horse and seriously injures another girl and horse. Those deaths and injuries inform all aspects of the rest of the nearly three-hour story. The surviving girl and horse both undergo gentle but firm therapy, and the famous Robert Redford-directed piece epically covers their slow and painful progress with beauty and eloquence. Profanity includes "s--t," "hell," "damn," "Jesus," "Christ," and "SOB." Finding one's place in the world, letting go, and the nature of love are all themes, which lead to a married woman deciding if she values her family above her personal needs.
A man and woman who have been working together are suddenly aware they're attracted to each other, conveyed in long stares and a momentary touch. They kiss passionately fully clothed.
A girl and her horse are killed in a collision with a truck. The impact is blurred so the gore is minimized, but a horse's bloody wounds are shown. Another girl and horse are badly injured.
"S--t," "hell," "damn," "Jesus," "Christ," "SOB."
It's important to find your place in the world. People should tell themselves the truth. Compassion, patience, and understanding can help pave the way to communication. No one can be in control all the time. It's important to let go of useless obsessions. When life gets difficult, don't give up and hide; stay and fight.
