Another horse movie


    I’ve been reading a lot about War Horse lately.
    People who follow the movie industry seem to think it’s got a shot at an Oscar
    nomination. The highly-anticipated screen adaptation of the stage adaptation of
    the novel will be out on Christmas. If you can’t wait ‘til then to get your
    new-horse-movie fix, there is another film that was released in limited markets
    last week.

    The Greening of Whitney Brown stars Brooke Shields,
    Kris Kristofferson, Aiden Quinn, and a clever Gyspy horse named Odd Job Bob.
    Let’s cut to the chase: this film is not going to go head-to-head with War
    Horse in the Oscar race. In fact, it’s getting pretty much universally panned
    by critics
    . However, judging from the preview, if you do decide to go see this
    film, you will probably at least be able to appreciate the amount of training
    that must have gone into Bob’s training. I’m going to predict that he easily
    steals the show.

    Hey, if you find yourself stuck trying to find
    entertainment for your young cousins over Thanksgiving weekend, better this
    than Twilight, right?
