This movie overall was pretty much your standard fair for a horse movie and if you're an admirer of horses, horse racing, or a touching story you'll enjoy it. I also thought that this movie portrayed some of the struggles of being a female jockey pretty accurately. The movie also shows how the bond between a girl and her horse can last. The thrills and dangers that go along with horse racing are highlighted as well. -if you know or knew nothing about horse racing this movie is sort of like a basic intro to the "dark side" of racing per say.

The plot had both strong and weak points, but they averaged out into an okay movie. The first 20 or so minutes was excellent and so adorable that I thought 'so far this is a 10'. However it was followed by some nasty turns of events that made me drop it down to an 7-8. Then it got better again with a turn of events that brought it back up to an 8. Yet at the very end I just couldn't quite justify the 8, yet again due to a turn of events, and dropped it back to a 7. -That probably wasn't very helpful, but if I gave you details it would spoil the movie. Just so you know this movie has it's tear jerking moments as well, and while it didn't have me crying it gave me a mild case of the sniffles.

Music was fine and the rewatch value is pretty low because although I would rewatch it, it would not take a high spot in priority. There are movies I would much rather rewatch first.

One day, I was browsing through on Netflix and found this movie and so I decided to watch it. Though "Lump of Sugar" wasn't one of the best nor memorable movies out there, it was an okay experience with this movie. SO here is a short review, of my own opinion.. though it might not be very helpful, here it is:

Story: 7/10.
Real cliche, and this type of thing has been done before, though others may not revolve around horses like this one. In here, we have a little girl, in fact a very adorable one, who has a relationship with a horse and eventually grows up to be horse racer.. It's a heartwarming story about a girl and her horse and the racing.

Acting/cast: 8/10
The little girl in this story is probably the most adorable thing in here... And the most memorable part of the whole movie.

Music: 7/10.
Heartwarming parts come in, heartwarming music comes. Sad part comes, sad music comes in. The music in here I didn't really remember nor it isn't all that great to remember. The only scene of music I really remembered in here is the scene when she listens to the radio and imagines the horse racing.

Rewatch Value: 5/10
I wouldn't really want to re watch this movie.

Overall: 7/10.
Btw to mention the cinematography was great in here. The coloring too. So damn peaceful. green. bright. and moody. Quite good for this type of movie.

-Sorry if my review wasn't really helpful. I know it is very choppy and may not make sense..but I'm trying to get better at doing them reviews.
