Aro Recommended Buck


USA 2011, 90 minutes
Dir. Cindy Meehl
Rating: [G]
Genres: Documentary

Topics: Animal Antics.


“One of those rare documentaries whose subject is so inherently fascinating that a fictional character could hardly compete.”~John DeFore, Washington Post

Aroview: A soothing and ultimately inspiring portrait of legendary trainer Buck Brannama, whose compassionate approach to horse rearing inspired the film, 'The Horse Whisperer'.

While of obvious appeal and interest to horse lovers, Buck's philosophical outlook and methodology of this work has universal application, genuinely born out of a childhood sustained at the abusive hands of his father. As with the primary-school teacher portrayed in the French doco, ETRE ET AVOIR, this is a gentle and all-too-rare portrait of the positive side of humanity.
