Race to Wind (originally titled Race to Redemption) is an inspirational, heart-warming story of hope and perseverance, even when the giant is tall. The film tells the story of a young woman who struggles to find the courage to compete in the race of her life after her father's devastating death. If she loses the race, her family will lose everything, including the legacy and home they worked so hard to build. If she wins, her life might just fall back into place!
A clean, family-friendly horse-centric movie. Preteen girls will especially enjoy all the horse action.
A classic drama that exposes the struggles and grief of a family trying to move on after the death of the husband/father. In some ways the story unfolds in a predictable manner but I was surprised by a few unexpected twists too. One of the predictable elements is the truly vile villain but it was so much fun to hate him and finally be able to stand up and cheer when he gets his comeuppance that I didn't mind his cookie-cutterness. :-) Overall, Race to Win offers a solid story -- I just felt it needed more time to dig deeper into relationships and more fully develop plot threads. Fresh and appealing to young eyes but a bit stagnant for seasoned viewers.
My thanks to Graf-Martin Communications and Mongrel Media Inc. for providing me with an online screening of this movie.
