March First Friday Book Club – “Buck” – Wyoming’s own Horse Whisperer
The First Friday Book Club will meet on Friday, March 4, to discuss the DVD Buck.
Buck is a fascinating documentary about Buck Brannaman, Wyoming’s own Horse Whisperer. He lived for a number of years in Kaycee.
The 1998 movie The Horse Whisperer, starring Robert Redford, was based on a book written about Buck.
Reviews for the movie Buck include:
Buck premiered at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah where it won the U.S. Documentary Competition Audience Award.
The New York Times gives Buck its NYT “Critics’ Pick.”
John DeFore of The Hollywood Reporter calls the film “a quietly captivating portrait of an unlikely character” that is “as modest as its subject and wins viewers over just as easily.”
The Washington Post gives the documentary the Critic’s Pick and writes Buck is “one of those rare documentaries whose subject is so inherently fascinating that a fictional character could hardly compete.”
