Buck 

Could do without horses? You're going to love "Buck."

Winner of the Audience Award at the Sundance Film Festival, the documentary tells the story of Buck Brannaman, Wyoming-based horse whisperer. He travels three-fourths of the year, conducting clinics all over the nation on breaking horses — and sometimes their owners — of bad behavior.

What's so great about that? Looking like a Will Rogers for the 21st century, this calm, gentle soul is the product of a household of abuse. Rather than bemoan his wretched, nightmarish past, Buck chooses to live for the moment. He's taken his lumps, then his lessons, and moved on.

Opening Friday exclusively at AMC Quail Springs Mall 24, his story is inspiring, whether or not you identify with the modern-day cowboy's old-fashioned, stripped-down lifestyle. Without even trying, Buck will have you charmed, and debuting director Cindy Meehl's film will have you laughing, crying and leaving the theater with enough joy in your heart to fill a 10-gallon hat. Take the kids. —Rod Lott
