Disney captures the heart of a champion in SECRETARIAT

Read FilmEdge's review of Disney's stirring sports and family drama SECRETARIATDisney has a strong track record with successful, stand on your feet and cheer sports dramas — celebrating indomitable human spirit and athletic valor in MIRACLE, THE ROOKIE and INVINCIBLE to name a few — and director Randall Wallace with scribe Mike Rich release another winner this Friday with SECRETARIAT.

This stirring, family friendly drama starring Diane Lane and John Malkovich enlivens the history of horse racing’s most famous champion by telling the engaging story of Secretariat’s unlikely owner, a Denver housewife who takes over her father’s farm and takes on the old boy network of breeding and racing thoroughbreds in high-stakes competition.

Even if you know the championship record of this horse, you don’t know the story of the woman and her family who turned an unwanted foal into an unbeatable hero.
