In 1998, Robert Redford directed and starred in "The Horse Whisperer," a film, based on a 1995 novel of the same name, about a group of men who could communicate with horses and help solve their owners' issues, both equine and personal.

The book's story was based on three real life horse whisperers, with special emphasis on Buck Brannaman. A straight-talking cowboy who travels the country, helping horse trainers, owners and equestrians, Brannaman is now on camera himself, the subject of the Sundance Film Festival Audience Award winning documentary, "Buck."

Tracing his life, from a rough and abusive childhood to his his continued work in stables around the country, the film is screening throughout the country and hits theaters June 17th.
