Want to kick off the summer with an epic adventure? I can’t think of anything more adventurous than braving the movie theater during a pandemic. But if that’s not quite adventurous enough for you, when you go, check out the new movie Spirit Untamed. It’s the perfect “let nothing stand in your way” story that will inspire endless adventures this summer.

In theaters June 4th, Spirit Untamed is the story of a headstrong girl named Lucky, who longs for a place to belong. Everything starts to fall into place when she encounters a free-spirited, wild mustang.
About Spirit Untamed
Lucky Prescott never really knew her late mother, Milagro Navarro, a fearless horse-riding stunt performer from Miradero, a small town on the edge of the wide-open frontier. Like her mother, Lucky isn’t exactly a fan of rules and restrictions, which has caused her Aunt Cora no small amount of worry. Lucky has grown up in an East Coast city under Cora’s watchful eye, but when Lucky presses her own luck with one too many risky escapades, Cora picks up stakes and moves them both back with Lucky’s father, Jim, in Miradero.
Lucky is decidedly unimpressed with the sleepy little town. She has a change of heart when she meets Spirit, a wild Mustang who shares her independent streak, and befriends two local horseback riders, Abigail Stone and Pru Granger. Pru’s father, stable owner Al Granger, is the best friend of Lucky’s father.
When a heartless horse wrangler and his team plan to capture Spirit and his herd, and auction them off to a life of captivity and hard labor, Lucky enlists her new friends. Together they bravely embark on the adventure of a lifetime to rescue the horse who has given Lucky freedom and a sense of purpose, and helped her discover a connection to her mother’s legacy and to her Mexican heritage that she never expected.

Having had access to an early screening of Spirit Untamed, if you asked me to describe this movie, I would list several things… wild, free-spirited, inspirational, can’t be tamed, let nothing stand in your way, create your own path …and as I list these out, I feel like I’m describing my daughter. Even at 5 years old, she’s just as headstrong and determined as Lucky. When she’s on a mission, those who interfere are just speed bumps along the road to the finish line.
I think I have a lot to learn from both of them.
Spirit Untamed only in theaters June 4th!
