The Electric Horseman

Director: Sydney Pollack
Year Released: 1979
Rating: 1.0

Aging cowboy (Redford) out of touch with 'real life' meets 'sell out' city girl (Jane Fonda) on a quest to find the single perfect place to release a prized race horse (that's the logo/mascot for a cereal company) back into the country (because just releasing him any old place would make things end faster, you got to get in all those metaphors while you're at it); you wouldn't think these 'opposites' would attract, but whattya know? Meanwhile, they're sending police officers and the highway patrol after the horse and arrest Redford. What would they have done if he nabbed Toucan Sam? Sent a SWAT team?
