Hope's Legacy is 103 minutes long, but feels much longer. This mindbogglingly boring family drama is a stunning mix of baseless and repetitive script contrivances that weakly substitute for drama, with clueless direction and incompetent acting. Dyan Cannon seems to know what she's doing, but she struggles to make herself look human while uttering the script's mechanical and lifeless dialogue. The plot could have been boiled down to provide the basis -- with different director, writer, and actors -- for a decent 30-minute after-school special. At least young horse lovers will be happy to gaze at the pretty horses.
