I’ve had a lot of time today to think and do some web surfing and I came across an old checklist from Matchbook Mag about Classic movies girls should have watched. Scanning the list, it seemed pretty typical except when I saw Wild Hearts Can’t Be Broken! Can we talk about how I was obsessed with that movie when I was younger? I wanted to write a post about it because, now that I’m pregnant and so close to meeting our baby girl, it makes me think about how I spent my own childhood and what I watched and listened to and read, etc.
First of all, the movie takes place around the time of the Great Depression which is perfect for me because I’ve always said that any other time period to be born is better than my own. It’s about a young girl girl named Sonor Webster who runs away from home to pursue her dreams of, you guessed it, becoming famous by riding and diving with horses. (Ok maybe you didn’t guess it because it is kind of a random gig). While riding and diving, Sonora loses sight in both of her eyes but overcomes her disability and continues her dream. What can I say? I’m a sucker for cheeseball movies and this is about as cheesy as it gets! It’s also based on a true story so be sure to look up the real Sonora Carver on the web after you watch the movie.
