This remarkable adaptation of Walter Farley's classic children's novel by Carroll Ballard-in which an American boy is rescued after a shipwreck off the coast of North Africa by a seemingly untamable wild horse-is a cinematic tour de force. From the crystalline shores of a deserted island in the Arabian Sea to the green grass and dusty roads of 1930s suburban New York, Ballard and director of photography Caleb Deschanel create a film of consistent visual invention and purity, also featuring a winning supporting performance by Mickey Rooney as a retired jockey and a gorgeous score by Carmine Coppola.
