This moving documentary won the prestigious Audience Award at this year?s Sundance Film Festival. Your horse is a mirror to your soul, and sometimes you may not like what you see, says Buck Brannaman, a true American cowboy and sage who travels the country helping horses with people problems. 'Buck,' a richly textured and visually stunning film, 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. 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.
