May 30 2016.....I ordered this one because it had a young Scarlett Johansson in it. (The Horse Whisperer). I had forgotten that, and when I received it, watched the movie, thinking it was a book about the real Horse Whisperer (Monty Roberts). I was a little confused while watching, as it was not at all like the book (The Man Who Listens To Horses) but then realized I had the wrong book! Anyway, after thinking about it for a while, I believe that I had watched this movie before, (way back when!) and was very disappointed in the ending. This time I just loved the whole thing, It was just such a gorgeous movie. I will have to read this book someday, and then maybe I will be a bit happier about then ending!? Anyway, as Mr Holland's Opus came in the same case, I watched it as well, even though I know I have watched it before. Well, I loved that movie all over again, even though I have to admit it was a 20 + kleenexer for me! (How embarrassing!) I cried in the sad parts, and in the happy parts as well! What a sap I am!
