Overview

A young woman pins her hopes and dreams on a maverick horse in this drama based on the classic novel by Mary O'Hara. Katy Alison Lohman is the teenage daughter of a horse rancher Tim McGraw who is grooming his son to take over the family business, while Katy is sent to an exclusive private school where she feels like a misfit. One day, while out riding, Katy finds a wild horse, a beautiful black mustang, and she feels an emotional connection with the animal. While her father is convinced having a mustang around his herd will be bad for both his thoroughbred ponies and the wild horse, Katy is certain she can break the strong-willed steed and make him a champion, and she even gives the horse a name -- Flicka. As Katy struggles to tame the headstrong Flicka, she also tries to prove to her father that she knows horses as well as he does, and that she's every bit as capable of running the ranch as her brother. Also starring Maria Bello and Ryan Kwanten, Flicka was previously adapted for the screen as My Friend Flicka in 1943.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
Two kindred misfit spirits form an emotional bond in the Wyoming mountain wilderness in this ravishingly photographed adaptation of Mary O'Hara's resilient coming-of-age novel, the inspiration as well for 1943's My Friend Flicka and its two sequels. Alison Lohman stars here as Katy, a headstrong young woman whose heart and head are in her family's ranch, if not in her studies. After turning in a blank final exam, she is danger of having to repeat a year at her financially draining boarding school. She gets a new lease on life when she befriends a wild mustang, whom she names Flicka it means "beautiful girl". Straight away, she butts heads with her father Tim McGraw, following up his memorable performance in Friday Night Lights over her determination to train Flicka. Dad is also torn between someday turning over the ranch to his son who confides to Katy that he doesn't like ranching and is instead opting for college and selling the precious land to developers, much to Katy's outrage. It is up to his peacekeeper wife Maria Bello to state the obvious: "When are you gonna look at your daughter and realize she's you?" Flicka trots out all the clichés, but it's hard not to get swept up in the breathtaking scenery and Katy and Flicka's redemptive friendship. The PG rating is for the mildest of profanity and an intense, stormy encounter with a mountain lion. But for kids who love horse movies and parents looking for old-fashioned family entertainment, Flicka will make your heart gallop.

    Sad, but good.

    I first saw this movie in theaters, and I loved it. Its soundtrack is awesome (I didn't like it at first, but after listening to it a few times, I grew very fond of it), and the Wyoming landscape is beautiful. It makes me cry every time I see it. If you can see through all the sadness, you would know that it does have a wonderful message.

    A disappointing remake of a classic

    This movie has so much wrong with it. You won't even see the note at the end saying that no animals were harmed in the making of this film - they were. You would do better to watch the original.

    Do not buy this DVD - you will regret it! The movie is just "lame" and Tim McGraw is a terrible actor.
