Hollywood likes to remake things when they run out of ideas (which is happening a lot lately). Some of them…
A headstrong 16 year old Katy McLaughlin desires to work on her family's mountainside horse ranch, although her father insists she finish boarding school. Katy finds a mustang in the hills near her ranch. Katy then sets her mind to tame a mustang and prove to her father she can run the ranch. But when tragedy happens, it will take all the love and strength the family can muster to restore hope.
I watched Flicka with my "horse loving daughter" and I was not disappointed. Some horse movies can be kind of corny but this one is not one of them. It has a great cast and the storyline grabs you and keeps you until the end of the movie. The daughter is very strong willed and probably many of us can relate to a child like her and yet it shows us why we love them so much. Great family movie. You may need a Kleenex here and there, don't worry its not a real tear jerker just a very sweet movie that you will be happy you watched.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
I watched this film because I was up really early in the Christmas holidays and it was one of the only films I could see that was on at 7:25 AM.
For a start, Flicka? What kind of a name is that? Apparently it means a young, beautiful girl or something, but I've never heard the term before. Well this horse called Flicka probably provides one of the best performances in the film and its a very typical story. Girl wants horse. Dad won't let her keep horse. Dad gets rid of horse. Girl goes looking for horse. Dad has to chase after girl. Horse gets hurt. Girl cries. Horse gets close to dying. Horse makes MIRACULOUS RECOVERY. Its a…
i finished it. surprisingly.
'Flicka' se basa en una novela de Mary O'Hara, en el libro, el protagonista es un chico, en la película, una chica. De primera esos datos no tienen mucha importancia, no nos tiraremos de los pelos por un cambio así. El póster original vemos a Katy (la protagonista) montando a caballo, lo interesante de esa portada es, que no vemos la cara del caballo, solamente la vemos a ella, la protagonista ¿Comprendéis por donde van los tiros?
'Flicka' es una película para crías de fabrica, desde el principio, el eje que mueve la película no es la relación entre el caballo y la chica, sino en la niña, que es una sufridora de libro. La película se centra mas en…
Shamelessly manipulative update of Mary O'Hara's book which changes the main character to a girl. A good cast featuring Maria Bello, Ryan Kwanten and Nick Searcy tries hard but the stand out performance is from Alison Lohman. The less said about Tim McGraw's acting ability the better. Doesn't break any new ground and makes for a mildly entertaining watch, but you know exactly where this is going from the start. It's been done before and done better.
We all love good movie posters. The ones we could frame and hang on our walls. The "Floating Heads"-posters don't…
