Flick Pick: Hidalgo

(Touchstone, 2004)

Epic swashbuckling adventure fiction, starring Viggo Mortensen, a horse, and the deserts of Arabia in panoramic splendor, with a solid boost from Omar Sharif. If you haven't seen this ever, ignore the carping from people with their panties in a perpetual twist, and watch the movie. Some people know how to write a good story, and  a luckier few get to see them made into movies. John Fusco, author of this screenplay, is both.
