Girl-and-her-horse story with some peril might inspire kids.

what parents need to know

Parents need to know that this coming-of-age story of a determined and persistent young orphan might be inspiring for young viewers and teach them a bit about the Great Depression. Sonora falls quite a bit while training and bloodies her nose, and a major injury later in the film may be tough to take for younger viewers. But on the whole, the film is filled with positive messages of self-reliance and pursuing your dreams.

what families can talk about

  • Families can talk about what makes Sonora a positive role model. How does she make her dream of being a "diving girl" a reality, even when everyone around her tells her she can't do it?
  • How accurately do you think the film reflects the realities of the Great Depression? How can you find out more about real life during the Depression?

I've always really liked this movie. Very clean and just a all around good family movie. Bittersweet, but the message is timeless, if you believe you can do anything.

Amazing it's a true story. She was very courageous. lovely movie. After the fateful accident making her blind she still pursues her dreams of horse diving, refusing to give up. very brave girl.

Stupid. The drama is forced and its just terrible all the way around-except maybe for the story-line- but this movie is a wreck.
