      Audience Member Meh, gave it a go, couldn’t finish Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 04/16/23 Full Review Audience Member This Disney movie was pretty good. Gabrielle Anwar, Michael Schoeffling, Cliff Robertson, Dylan Kussman, Kathleen York, and the rest of the cast did a pretty good job in this movie. This true story about a young woman who dreams of being a diving girl was dramatic, inspirational, and heartfelt. It's about pursuing your dreams and never giving up on them no matter the circumstances are. If you haven't seen this movie yet, check it out sometime. It's worth watching. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review r 9 Fantastic stuff! I rather loved watching 'Wild Hearts Can't Be Broken'. That's despite a few uneasy things about it, one being the love story (under/age gap?) and the other being that it involves diving horses; which I had no knowledge of before now... what an insanely messed up thing that was! The film is, though, based on true events so it's difficult to judge it on those parts. I'm just saying, it did make me feel iffy watching at times. Away from that, the film has a lot of great things going in its favour. Starting with the cast. Gabrielle Anwar is outstanding in the lead role as Sonora, particularly across the third act. A top, top performance from her. Michael Schoeffling (Al) and Cliff Robertson (Doc) are very good, also. Those three work very nicely together - impressive casting. I really rate how the film's made, the score in particular is awesome; as is the editing. The premise is extremely watchable, I was locked in throughout the 88 minutes. It has humour and heart. Another hidden gem in Disney's live-action collection. Watch it if you can. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member I fell in love with this movie the first time I saw it. It is a beautiful story based on real life and events. This is the only movie I have ever watched where the end leaves me both crying and laughing at the same time every time I see it. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 09/01/20 Full Review steve d uninteresting for adults but kids may find something to like. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member This is a movie I have loved since the day it came out and I still watch it at least once a year. The acting and the chemistry is fantastic! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
