Buck is opening this weekend in the Triad, and I’ve seldom seen a movie that should appeal to such a wide variety of people, especially a documentary.

This is a great story simply told, and first time filmmaker, Cindy Meehl, knows how to assemble a crew and how to let the story unfold without forcing it.  Sort of like the subject of her film is with horses; the film is about the man who inspired the book and the movie The Horse Whisperer.

Buck Brannaman spends nine months out of every year on the road giving clinics to help people with their horses, or as he likes to put it, to help horses with their people.  He has a terrific backstory as an abused child who grows up to empathize with horses in amazing ways.

The film is about an hour and a half long, and you do not have to know a thing about horses to find it riveting and moving.  I love this movie.
