This past Saturday night we had a fun movie night.  I was sent "Race to Win,' which arrived on DVD back on February 14th, and stars Luke Perry from the hit television series of the 90's, 90210, along with Danielle Campbell, Aiden Flowers, Candice Michele Barley, and Thomas Francis Murphy.  My girls love horses, so when I showed them the movie trailer a couple weeks ago, they couldn't wait for the movie to arrive and watch.

Here is the trailer to the movie, so you see what "Race to Win" is all about...

Right before Christmas we lost my grandmother, so it was a little hard to watch, as I am still trying to deal with her sudden and unexpected passing. But, as I sat and watched the movies snuggling up with my girls, I found myself remembering all the good times I had with my grandmother, and how she would not want me feeling sad that she gained her angel wins.  Instead, she would want me to snuggle my girls even closer and enjoy the time I have with them, while watching movies like this, as well as sharing some of my loves like baking, which came about by spending time in my Nana's kitchen when I was a child learning all the different Italian cookie recipes she was passing down to me.  I know my grandmother is looking down at me and proud at the woman I have become and especially proud at how well I am raising the girls, and how smart and caring they are.

My girls loved the movie.  They did get angry during the scenes where a bad man was trying to drug and hurt the horse. When the bad man would appear in a scene, they would jump off the couch and tell him to go away.  And, throughout the movie they were rooting on Hannah to save the family farm.  Does she?  You will just have to pick up a copy of this movie to share with your family to find out.  

We all gave this movie two thumbs up.  It was a wonderful movie for families to enjoy together, as it dealt with themes like the importance of family, perseverance and staying honest and true to yourself.  And, as you sit to watch the movie, you will find yourself getting lost in the breathtaking backdrops of the Rhode's farm, along with the beautiful horses.  We will definitely be watching this movie again soon.
