Movie Review: Secretariat

07 Aug

I always knew I’d end up watching Secretariat; it’s a horse movie. I love horses. The thing was, I knew the ending, so I was not certain how they’d hold my attention. They held it with honest performances, a simple story line, and beautiful shots of horses running.

Diane Laneand John Malkovich were perfect (this is not a surprise), and the supporting cast was well rounded with faces I knew but did not detract from the story.

The movie kept me awake on a night when I was exhausted, which is about the highest compliment I can give it.
