This is a great movie with a nice message, but, be forewarned that it is a bit dismal. The boy has many nightmares that are a little disturbing. The island is beautiful, however.

Wonderful story paired with breathtaking cimematography

"After a terrible accident rips his family apart, 12-year-old Mark is shipped off to live with his aunt Fiona, whom he has never met. From their first chilly meeting, their relationship seems doomed. Fiona, a reclusive researcher living a hermit-like existance on a windswept island, is quite happy with her life and certainly doesn't welcome the intrusion of a child. She has spent happy, quiet years studying the wild horses who share her island and she quickly makes it clear that she will not allow Mark to endanger her position on the island. For his part, Mark tries his best to please his aunt, although his natural young-boy energies and curiosity tend to push her nerves to the edge.

Eventually, both learn to give a little and their relationship slowly begins to warm, with each learning to enjoy the other, despite their quirks and their lives settle into a comfortable rhythm.

When a sudden storm leaves the newest wild foal orphaned, however, Mark is unable to walk away and allow nature to "take it's course." As Fiona's residence on the island depends on her strict adherence to the law (which forbids any physical contact with the wild horses,) she is forced to choose between her idyllic life and the life of the helpless foal.

Starring Jane Seymour, the beauty of this film lies not just in the heart-warming story, but also in the stunning footage of the island and its lovely equine inabitants."

"I am a huge Jane Seymour fan anyway and thought she did wonderfully in this film. I liked the underlying story of how Mark's family died. It kept me guessing. The horses and scenery were beautiful. Even though the story line moved slowly at times, I still liked it. It showed the natural beauty out there. The innocence of the horses was wonderful. I would especially recommend this movie to people who like nature."

"I live in Boulder, Colorado and on March 19,2005. I rented the DVD movie of Touching Wild Horses staring Jane Seymour. I enjoyed the movie and all the horses.
But what got me was the way the Aunt started out, rough and un caring but with a little help from a boy and a horse foal named John.The Aunt saw for herself that being caring and opening up does more then acting rough and uncaring. I really also enjoyed the views of Sable Island."
