Young katie claims a wild horse as her own - an effort to prove to her father that she is capable one day of taking over the family ranch.

"It's hard to argue with the movie's big heart, solid craftsmanship, likable characters...  M.E. Russell, Portland Oregonian
"...a well-made family drama...honest, tough and surprisingly engaging.  Stephen Hunter, Washington Post
"...a girl-and-her-horse movie that isn't trying to be all things for all audiences.  William Arnold, Seattle Post-Intelligencer

Editor's Note
Based on Mary O'Hara's classic coming-of-age novel, MY FRIEND FLICKA, this 2006 drama follows Katy (Alison Lohman), a rebellious Wyoming teen, as she contends with her parents (country singer Tim McGraw and lauded actress Maria Bello) and struggles to tame the willful and wild horse of the title. When her frustrated father opts to sells the rambunctious Flicka (whose Swedish name roughly translates as "beautiful girl"), Katy must take drastic action for the sake of both herself and her equine companion.

Initially filmed in the 1940s under its original name, the story switches the lead character from a boy to a girl, allowing the always-compelling Lohman to add depth to her restless character. Previously known for the edgy drama A HOME AT THE END OF THE WORLD, director Michael Mayer skillfully corrals the story through beautiful Western scenery (familiar to fans of BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN) and breathtaking horse-riding sequences, but the real highlights of FLICKA are the performances of Lohman and Bello, who play off energetically against the stoic McGraw. With its old-fashioned, straightforward cinematic storytelling and topnotch cast, FLICKA breaks to the front of the family-film herd, and stands out as one of the finest horse-themed movies of the early 21st century.

Professional Reviews

New York Times
"[The film is] set on a horse ranch in a spectacularly pristine, mountainous swath of Wyoming..." 10/20/2006 p.E12

Entertainment Weekly
"[A] new yet insistently old-fashioned spin on the kid-lit classic MY FRIEND FLICKA....Bighearted and beautifully shot..." 10/27/2006 p.55

Reel.com 7 of 10
A remake of the sentimental 1943 family favorite, My Friend Flicka, there's not enough meat on this old nag's bones to hold the attention of most adults. But this well-meaning fable was not made for grown-ups; it was made for those kids, should they still exist, that adore their four-legged equine friends...Twenty-seven-year-old Alison Lohman, last spotted sleeping with Kevin Bacon in Atom Egoyan's randy Where the Truth Lies, finds a much better fit in Flicka, playing 16-year-old Katy McLaughlin...Again, what Flicka comes down to is kids and animals. Children entranced by ponies and petting zoos will probably adore Katy and her filly, but those more taken with their X-Box games may wonder about this thing called grass and these beings called horses - and nag Mom for quarters to play video games. - Pam Grady

Variety 9 of 10
Updated and overhauled from its 65-year-old source novel to speak to the contemporary American West, "Flicka" is a wonderful film in search of an appropriately sized audience. To call this the best horse-and-kid picture since "The Black Stallion" a quarter century ago is true but misleading; it's not really either an animal or a kids' film but rather a young adult drama that rings emotionally true, with nary a manufactured note struck..."Flicka" could so easily have gone wrong, in one direction, by being cutesy and manipulative, or in another by indulging in rote dysfunctional family posturing. Mayer steers clear of these shoals thanks to good dramatic instincts and perfectly chosen actors. - Todd McCarthy
