New movie. I haven't seen it but I understand it's about the life of Buck Brannaman, the model for Horse Whisperer.

http://www.sandiegoreader.com/weblogs/bi...aman-speaks-up/

"Buck Brannaman is more at home in a horse corral than in a poolside cabana at a trendy hotel in San Diego’s Gaslamp Quarter. But the incongruous setting doesn’t bother him. At least not when he talks about Buck, the uplifting documentary that opens here on June 24."

"The film traces his life from his horrendous childhood (his father was a violent alcoholic who beat him) to his career as a revered horse trainer. Brannaman was a role model for the novel and movie The Horse Whisperer. And Robert Redford, who worked with him on the set, considers him “the real deal."

I haven't seen it but I intend to. It sounds like something I will be very interested in. I really enjoyed the Horse Whisperer. I think about that movie a lot. Apparently Buck will be something that helps me understand why I like Horse Whisperer.

Hi, Allen,
I saw "Buck" and thought it was great. It showed me that a healthy life is possible after a childhood of abuse. And Buck's understanding of human/animal psyche is amazing.
