Friends of the Cinema screening documentary, Buck

Web Lead

Creston's Friends of the Cinema will show Buck at the Tivoli Theatre on Nov. 21.

As a child, Buck Brannaman was a victim of abuse. As an adult, he has won admiration and acclaim for work that has made him known as “the horse whisperer.” A documentary, Buck, tells Brannaman’s story in the next Friends of the Cinema presentation.

The New York Times describes Buck as “mesmerizing viewing. Holds your attention and heart for a tight 88 minutes.” Perhaps it was the painful result of growing up in a broken home that turned Brannaman to develop an intimate understanding about animal behavior. Or maybe it was just the need to give and get the unconditional love that helped him connect with animals. But in Buck, audiences learn a lesson about not only to communicate with four-legged friends, but with each other.

With an 87 per cent approval rating from the Rotten Tomatoes website and a growing list of accolades, Buck might just become Creston’s movie event of the season.

The documentary will be shown at the Tivoli Theatre on Nov. 21 at 7:30 p.m.
