When he's invited to participate in a 3,000-mile horse race through the Arabian desert, the down-and-out Hopkins (Viggo Mortensen) and his mustang, Hidalgo, find themselves competing for a $10,000 prize against some of the world's finest horses and most accomplished riders. Zuleikha Robinson, J.K. Simmons, and Omar Sharif co-star. 136 min.
