The Horse Whisperer script
Synopsis: When teenage Grace (Scarlett Johansson) is traumatized by a riding accident that badly injures her horse, her mother Annie (Kristin Scott Thomas), a high-powered New York magazine editor, realizes Grace will only recover once the horse is healed. She takes them both to a secluded Montana ranch, where legendary "horse whisperer" Tom Booker (Robert Redford) begins to heal the horse, and also stirs long-dormant feelings in Annie that lead her to question her marriage and choice of career.

ANNIE:

That little shit!

She dials a portable phone and moves through the apartment

as she talks:

ANNIE:

Hi Lucy?... Did I wake you?... Have

you read the Post?... They've got a

little item about me and Fiske. He's

saying I fired him and that I faked

the new circulation figures... Ha,

ha... Oh, please... It's the last

act of a desperate gnome... Set up a

phone call with Don Farlow for 9:30...

Throughout the phone call, Annie is selecting clothes, turning

on the shower, undressing...

EXT. DYER HORSE FARM - MORNING

The snow has stopped falling. Grace walks along a hill, hands

in pocket. Spread out on the landscape are horses, on a horse

farm, standing like statues in the white covered fields.

As Grace comes along the hill, we see another GIRL (JUDITH)

coming from the opposite direction. She doesn't have Grace's

lean elegance but her warm, friendly smile brightens her

face. Upon reaching her, Grace returns the smile with a hug.

JUDITH:

It's warmer than I thought.

GRACE:

You want to go to a movie tonight?
