A touching story of wounded searching folks, set in the beautiful country and culture of the west. The story was very good -- told well and acted well. This is a chick flick guys can enjoy & get points with their gals!
FOR THE TRUE ROMANTIC - WHAT A LOVE STORY

"It appears that one person has no romance in its soul.
I know there are others.
Such a fabulous, tender love story -- should become a classic.
This movie does not depend on any torrid scenes. And is in keeping with the Hallmark style of good entertainment.
For a Wyoming widower to meet up with a New Yorker is a wonderful stretch of the imagination. Love that sister for her interference.
The color, the scenery, the horses - everything in the movie tuggs at the heart. Tenderly attacks the senses and leaves one with a feeling of love.
So many actors can't portray the tenderness and sorrow needed for a stong love story. Wow!
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED -- if you miss this one - you have denied yourself something special."
FAR BETTER THAN "HORSE WHISPERER"

"With my apacolyptic world view with the evolutionary dailliance of Homo sapiens leading to certain planetary sucicide I found this film to be wholesome and uplifting rather than the usual American video presentations of violence,drugs,meaningless sex, models to bring out the worst in human behavior including our public school system students,horror etc.
I could find nothing to criticize in this film.
The acting, cinematography,music, and story were superb.
A major theme was the relentless task of dealing with catastrophic loss in a constructive way and moving on to new authentic relationships and finding "your people."
The film also had many humorous and poignant scenes.
The contrast of Wyoming with NYC was of special interest to me.
I'm from back East, and have lived in Wyoming for almost fifteen years and before that Montana.
This cinema reminded me of two French films "Blue" and "Red" from The Three Colors series by a Polish director.
Here again was the issue of surving and coping major unexpected loss or losses.
The answers again included personal courage and finding "your world of decent caring people".
Sometimes a corny romance is a good thing.

"I'm more of an "Aliens" sort of girl than a romance fan, but I have to admit to absolutely loving this movie. I guess I'm just a sappy romantic at heart. This film's been airing on the Hallmark Channel, and I find myself watching it over and over, to the point where I came here to find out if it was on DVD. Thank goodness it is!
I particularly appreciated the cinematography and settings, and well... okay. I really appreciated Andrew McCarthy in his jeans. :) As a mustang adopter and advocate, I can't say that the depiction of mustangs and the BLM (called the "DLM" in the film) is really terribly accurate, but I'm EXTREMELY gratified to see a film even approaching the question of wild horse management in such a positive way. (Of course, when it comes to training mustangs, I wouldn't try this at home; while we see Tyler using some pretty decent training methods, he's also working with a domestic quarter horse rather than a range-fresh mustang; the real thing doesn't tend to go that fast or easy. ;))
I think they did a nice job of making the characters both believable and likeable, and the various conflicts and situations actually make sense, unlike too many films where things could just be resolved if the characters would stop behaving like morons. :) Andrew McCarthy does a really nice job as a gruff cowboy type... and he certainly sits a horse well, too."
