FLICKA is a contemporary motion picture adaptation of Mary O’Hara’s beloved novel My Friend Flicka. The filmmakers have re-engineered the story of a child coming into adulthood, changing the main character from a boy to a girl. In the new film, 16-year-old Katy McLaughlin (Alison Lohman) dreams of fulfilling her family legacy by working on her father’s ranch in modern-day Wyoming. Katy’s father Rob (Tim McGraw) wants more for her, insisting Katy go to college. He knows how difficult ranch life can be, having struggled to keep the ranch solvent in an ever-changing world.

When Katy finds a wild mustang, which she names Flicka, and brings her home, and sets out to make her a riding horse, Rob sees nothing but more trouble. Despite her father’s disapproval, Katy and Flicka form an unbreakable bond that is a catalyst for changes in the McLaughlin household.

Conflicted by her need to tame her own wild ways yet stay true to the wild child within, Katy sets out to break through to Flicka and make her a riding horse. But Flicka and Katy are more alike than she could have imagined. Like Katy, Flicka has a disdain for authority and is not about to give up her freedom without a fight.

Flicka stars country singer Tim McGraw (“Friday Night Lights”), Maria Bello (“A History of Violence”), Alison Lohman (“Big Fish”) and Ryan Kwanten (TV’s “Summerland”). The film is directed by Michael Mayer, whose debut feature, “A Home at the End of The World,” received critical acclaim.

Twentieth Century Fox releases FLICKA nationwide on October 20, 2006. For more information visit the web site: http://www.flickamovie.com/
