Movies about/starring women. I originally started this list just as a reference for myself, but hopefully others will find it…
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.
It's been at least a decade since I've seen it. Love the filming location. Decent acting but the main reason I like the film is for the touching story between a girl and her love for a horse. Inspirational film.
What do you get when you add a young rebellious girl, horses, gorgeous scenery, country music and a dash of not-so-convincing-cross-dressing? Flicka. This is exactly what is advertised: a girl and her horse movie. The acting is decent though a very brief mountain lion attack had some suspect special effects.
Overall this is a fun movie to watch with a real feel good ending. If you like horses or cowboys then you'll probably find something to like. The biggest flaw for Flicka was the use of a sudden unexplained fever to carry the final act of the movie. Aside from that the story doesn't address the family's money woes but you are left to assume by the happy ending that it was solved.
What I got to say about "Flicka" is that it's a good descent movie. The performances by the cast is good. The directing by Michael Mayer (VI) is really good. The screenplay by Laurence Konner and Mark Rosenthal is fine. The cinematography in this movies is good. And the score is nice and sweet all at the same time. "I'm raving that "Flicka" is a movie that the family will enjoy and love."
Es tut richtig weh Maria Bello diese belanglose Rolle spielen zu sehen. Ein vollkommen überflüßiger Film in dem einzig die Naturaufnahmen überzeugen.
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 may contain 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…
