what parents need to know

Parents need to know that Flicka: Country Pride is the third family-friendly installment in the literary horse's film franchise. Like the previous movie, this is a direct-to-DVD release that centers around yet another teenage girl who bonds with the beautiful mustang. This is a wholesome movie that's a great pick for horse-loving kids and tweens; just be ready for a tiny bit of romance (two chaste kisses) and some mean-girl behavior that's sweetly resolved by the end of the movie. There are also several references to a deceased father and husband who died in a tragic accident, but the theme of loss is pivotal to the story, which teaches kids the importance of friendship and support during tough times.

what families can talk about

  • Families can talk about why horse movies are so popular. Which are some of the best horse films, and how does Flicka: Country Pride compare?
  • While many contemporary movies feature "talking" animals, this one focuses on a regular, non-speaking horse. Which do you prefer -- talking animal movies or more realistic animal movies?
  • How does the movie depict Stephanie and Kelly's relationship? Is it believable that friends who fell out of touch after a death in the family would turn into frenemies? Kids: Do you know friends who've fallen out with each other but then mended their friendship?
