Ride a Wild Pony ★★★

Had hoped for a little more from this Cardiff-shot children’s film from the 70’s, but there wasn’t much here that stuck with me. The story plods along a bit too deliberately to hold my attention, so I wonder how it would have played to juvenile me. It’s not bad though - every once in a while a scene is punctuated by classicly Carfiffian lighting that snapped me back to attention, and I suppose this technically also lies in that nexus of early Australian film production that I love. I might like this more on a rewatch.
