One of the best documentaries of the year and the audience award winner at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival, this terrific film tells the story of Buck Brannaman, a real-life "horse whisperer" and an inspiration for Robert Redford's film. We learn about Buck's abusive childhood, and how he overcame his difficulties with the love of a wonderful foster family. Buck is an inspiration. You don't have to love horses to love this movie, but after viewing it, you will have a new perspective on life.

"The Pee-wee Herman Show on Broadway"
Pee-wee Herman's TV show was a hit and a Broadway show based on the series scored with audiences as well. Audiences really loved the show, laughing along to the antics of Pee-wee, Cowboy Curtis and other pals.
If you were not a fan of Pee-wee before the show, you will be after seeing it.
