- Angst? What Angst?: At the end of the book, despite how deeply in love they were, nothing is said of Annie's reaction to Tom Booker's death.
- Awesome Music: Courtesy of Thomas Newman. Special mention goes to "The Rhythm of the Horse" and "Your Misfortune (None of My Own)" playing when Grace rides Pilgrim again.
- Hilarious in Hindsight: This film was the breakout role of Scarlett Johansson, who has an intergenerational friendship with a character played by Robert Redford. 16 years later, she'd reunite with Redford, except he's playing the villain that time.
- Squick: The horse's wounds in the film.
- The Woobie: Both Grace and Pilgrim.
- Likewise, Judith and her horse Gulliver, neither of whom survived the tragic accident at the beginning.
