Great news from Park City, Utah this morning! Buck, the documentary about horseman Buck Brannaman, has received the Audience Award at this year's Sundance Film Festival. Distribution deals for North America and Australia/New Zealand have also been struck.
The film premiered at the Sundance festival this week, so I haven't seen it yet but it just went to the top of my must-see list. I would have seen it anyway. I think I need to see it, and so do you.
Take some people who know nothing about horses. I bet they will thank you.
Call it irony, but Buck was the inspiration for the 1990s novel The Horse Whisperer by Nicholas Evans, which was made into a film starring and directed by Sundance founder Robert Redford.
Let's spread the word, although it may be wise to wait until some theater dates are announced. In the meantime, bookmark theBuck web site, "like" the Buck fan page, and stay tuned for more news about Buck the film!
