Almost 2 hours of exquisite viewing from the start to finish, “Secretariat” might not let you blink during the performance.
Diane Lane, plays Penny, a Denver housewife who learns of her mother’s passing and seems to endlessly have a desire to relive the life of the horsewoman she seemed to still have embedded in her heart. Trying to live a double life as a family woman and owner of race horses, her trials are numerous.
Supporting cast is well selected, yet Secretariat dominates your attention to a spell-binding place a viewer might not even pay much attention to those people since the horse keeps your eyes on him. What a great attribute for actors and actresses to be second to a horse in a movie which this flick does quite well.
The creation of this Randall Wallace picture should be nominated for the brilliant flow and true revealing of the 1973 life of a race horse whose name,”Secretariat”, is well known today. This Triple Crown Winner pulls the viewer into his life with his eyes, stamina, closeness with the trainer and owner. Audiences can fully be involved with all that actively that takes place in New York Aquaduct, New York Belmont, Virginia and Kentucky Derby atmospheres.
Widely vivid excitement and animal invitations by this gentle, social horse, “Secretariat” keeps the attention of everyone. Even though the horse is just a horse, “Secretariat”, was manicured and groomed to win. Little did Penny allow for anything other than a complete and substantial winner . Secretariat became the Triple Crown Winner after a dry spell of 25 years, creating perhaps the greatest racehorse of all time.
With a scale of 10 I highly recommend you viewing “Secretariat”. With any love for animals, bring tissues for all age men and women because of the magnitude of the power of this animal.
