This is a story about a girl who is a nobody and a horse that is not thought much more of of a nobody then she. Her single mom doing the best she can, and all the friends she makes that she never seems to see as friends. How the girl and the horse meet and fall in love with each other. Their love forms and unmistakeable bond that spreads way beyond the two of them to change not just their own lives but the world around them.
I can't say the acting was inspiring or the story riveting. To tell you the truth I have no way of explaining to you why this is one of my all time favorite movies, but it is. Kay Panabaker makes me really believe she is Moondance, and the other actors the same. The roles all seem to really come to life as this story unfolds. The ending wasn't a shocker. It didn't have any exciting twist, and no one really changes.
Trust me your going to love it. And in the words of Moondance herself, "He may be a little different but everyone deserves a second chance." This movie is the kind that grows on you and you just want to love it, and since when did love need a reason. It just is.

Not just "another horse movie"

"I got to see this movie during its premiere weekend in Salt Lake City. At first I didn't think I would like it since I'm not really into the traditional "horse" movie. Much to my surprise the wonderfully-written story deals much more with the relationships of the characters in the story. I thought the performances by Kay Panabaker, Don Johnson and Lori Laughlin were fantastic, believable and relevant. The best thing is that it is a movie that the entire family will enjoy, including the parents!!!
Another note: I agree with past reviewers on the photography, it is fantastically done. I also think the soundtrack is brilliant, featuring some wonderful vocalists doing some great songs."
Uplifting Heartwarming Famliy Film

"This film was so great. It is a truly heartwarming family film. Great family movies are so hard to come by now a days, this is the first I have been truly happy to see at a film festival in a long time. I was so moved by the story, it felt as if it was my life story being told up on the screen. My favorite part was that the mother and daughter had a real nice relationship. My props goes to the writer of this film. They should be nominated for an academy award or for family film. I absolutely loved it, and can't wait for it to come out on DVD. I am recommending this film to all my friends and stocking up on christmas presents of this film now. Only 14 more days to go...I can't wait until it arrives!!!!!!!!"
A movie for all ages.

"My 5 year old enjoyed this as much as I did at 39. I think everyone can relate to Moondance on some level either from having lost someone or from being the one that was left out. This story shows how we can persevere & rise above. The movie is well written, well directed and well acted. I am already recommending it to all my friends and family. It is a true shame that it did not make it into the national theaters so that more people could have seen it."
