  • Summary: A compelling compilation of expert testimony, undercover footage and true life stories shot against the dramatic backdrops of the American countryside. Featuring interviews with distinguished veterinarians, trainers, academics, investigators, policymakers and members of the equine communityA compelling compilation of expert testimony, undercover footage and true life stories shot against the dramatic backdrops of the American countryside. Featuring interviews with distinguished veterinarians, trainers, academics, investigators, policymakers and members of the equine community including Paul Sorvino, Linda Gray, Tippi Hedren, and Willie Nelson, the film addresses a question that recently prompted the U.S. Secretary of the Interior, Ken Salazar, to threaten to ‘punch out’ a reporter who asked him if “any changes need to take place in the system in terms of safeguarding” America’s wild and domestic horses.

    The sublime beauty of her subject cannot fail to move; less steady is this presentation of their plight.

    Filled with crushing facts about animal cruelty yet also overstuffed and overwrought, it's emotionally and visually tough to watch.
