Directed by Joe Johnston. With Viggo Mortensen, Zuleikha Robinson, Omar Sharif. Hidalgo is an action-adventure and one mans journey of personal redemption. Based on the life of Frank T. Hopkins, his legend comes to life when one of the greatest riders the American west has ever known is pitted against the worlds finest Arabian horses and racers.
Onetime cowboy Frank T. Hopkins (VIGGO MORTENSEN) was once billed as a living legend, but in fact the glory days for Hopkins and his beloved horse, a mustang named Hidalgo, are long past. Outcasts from their own land, Frank and Hidalgo both have something to prove when Hopkins became the first American invited to enter the Ocean of Fire, a grueling 3,000-mile survival race across punishing terrain of the Arabian Desert. With his competitors vowing victory, the race becomes not only a matter of pride and honor, but a fight for survival as they attempt the impossible.
The story of the cowboy Hopkins and his mustang, strangers in a strange land as they become the first American and non-Arabian horse to compete in the toughest endurance race the world has ever known, Hidalgo stars Viggo Mortensen as a man billed as the greatest distance rider the West has ever known.
