Address Comments To:
(C, B, L) A moral lesson that one has to lose one's life by giving to others in order to find it, marred by 5 profanities and 2 obscenities.
In the film, DARK HORSE, fourteen-year-old Allison Mills, shaken by her mother's death, keeps company with the wrong friends and winds up in juvenile court. However, Allison discovers a whole new life after the judge sentences her to ten weekends of community service on a horse ranch where disabled children learn to ride horses. DARK HORSE is an entertaining film that will provide young people with a positive example.
This "must see" film brings to mind the scriptural idea of losing one's life in order to find it (Luke 17:33, since only in the service of others did Allison find her life. DARK HORSE provides young people with a positive example, and it is an entertaining, moral film that will challenge, encourage and stir your emotions.
