QUICK TAKE:
Drama: A long-term prisoner finds a kindred spirit in the form of a wild mustang he's supposed to help tame.
PLOT:
Roman Coleman (MATTHIAS SCHOENAERTS) has been in prison for the past twelve years and has just been transferred to a new facility in Nevada. There, a psychiatrist tries to figure out his state of mind, but he's a man of few words, even if that's toward his pregnant teenage daughter, Martha (GIDEON ADLON), who wants him to sign her emancipation papers. He ends up working in a program where his prison has partnered with the Bureau of Land Management to tame captured wild stallions to make them saleable at auction.

Taught the ropes by fellow prisoner Henry (JASON MITCHELL) and under the watchful eye of Myles (BRUCE DERN) who runs the program, Roman ends up assigned to one such horse that seems unbreakable. Yet, Roman perseveres and finds something of a kindred spirit in the mustang, all while having to deal with his imprisonment, usual prison events, and his estranged relationship with his daughter.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Unless they're into horses or are fans of someone in the cast, it doesn't seem too likely.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
For language, some violence and drug content.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
