The Horse WhispererRobert Redford’s (The Sting) gorgeous 1998 movie The Horse Whisperer is one that fully deserves the high-definition treatment, and we hope this Disney Blu-ray transfer is stellar.

Directed by as well as starring Redford, the film is based on the Nicholas Evansnovel and tells the story of Tom Booker (Redford), a unique horse trainer who has an extraordinary gift with animals. When he’s hired to help a girl (Scarlett Johansson, Iron Man 2) and her horse after a devastating riding accident, Booker’s talents change the lives of both.

The highly acclaimed PG-13 film also stars Dianne Wiest (Rabbit Hole), Chris Cooper (The Company Men), Kate Bosworth (Straw Dogs) and Kristin Scott Thomas (Sarah’s Key) and Sam Neill (TV’s Alcatraz) as the girl’s parents.
