Paul Della Pelle's My Best Friend (2016), Kristen is a big
city girl who just been moved to the countryside with her father
...and she hates it (and her father for it). She misses her old
friends, fashion, shopping, Wi-Fi and modern city comforts. As she
struggles to fit in, she feels like a fish out of water, then she
gets help from the most unexpected place ...Stanford, her telepathic
horse. With the help of Stanford, she learns how to adjust to her
new life, make friends, meet boys, save the farm and even learn how
to be a real cowgirl.
was another girl and her horse movie, a young troubled girl moves to
a countryside and learns how to ride and take care of horses and
learns something about herself she never knew, and usually saves the
farm from some disaster by the end of the movie. This was a family
friendly movie, but it felt it like was more for kids than adults,
but at least the horse with a superpower is a twist to set it apart
from so many bad such films of late. Catherine Bach and Patrick
Muldoon also star.
anamorphically enhanced 1.78 X 1 image originated on a 4K Ultra HD
camera, but this tradedown is just too soft for its own good, but the
original soundmaster for the lossy Dolby Digital 5.1 mix sounds as
good as it can here. Extras include interviews with cast, minuscule
bonus episodes and trailers.
