Buck 2011

Buck is a film about horseys. Not PONIES. Oh, I should also mention it’s a documentary about horse trainer Buck Brannaman. Awesome horse trainer name. Like a Cormac McCarthy novel.

Plot: A true American cowboy and sage on horseback who travels the country for nine grueling months a year helping horses with people problems. BUCK follows Brannaman from his abusive childhood to his phenomenally successful approach to horses. A real-life “horse-whisperer”, he eschews the violence of his upbringing and teaches people to communicate with their horses through leadership and sensitivity, not punishment. Buck possesses near magical abilities as he dramatically transforms horses – and people – with his understanding, compassion and respect. In this film, the animal-human relationship becomes a metaphor for facing the daily challenges of life. A truly American story about an unsung hero, BUCK is about an ordinary man who has made an extraordinary life despite tremendous odds.
