3 stars out of 4 -- With this stirring, thoroughly entertaining movie, director Randall Wallace has achieved the next to impossible, injecting genuine tension and suspense into a narrative we all know the ending to.
Wall Street Journal

[With] a strong and satisfying performance by Diane Lane....She is an actress with an instinct for honesty, someone incapable of false moves, and her restrained focused, performance as Chenery is a graceful stabilizing force here.

Lane projects the combo of homespun warmth and steely determination that has always been intrinsic to her screen appeal. Of the sterling supporting thesps, Cromwell is a subtle standout...
Variety

4 stars out of 4 -- It is a great film about greatness, the story of the horse and the no less brave woman who had faith in him.
Chicago Sun-Times

Rating: 2/4 -- It teeters between pleasantly generic film biography and rank manipulation. Full Review

It's hopeful, it's cheerful, it's funny, and there's nothing in it to keep you from seeing it with either your 88-year-old grandmother or your 8-year-old daughter. Even better, both are likely to enjoy it. Full Review

Product Description:

A housewife with little knowledge of horse-racing fosters one of the greatest race horses of all time as the story of the 1973 Triple Crown winner comes to the screen in this inspirational underdog drama based on the novel SECRETARIAT: THE MAKING OF A CHAMPION by William Nack and starring Diane Lane and John Malkovich. Penny Chenery (Lane) is a devoted mother and housewife whose ailing father is the proprietor of Meadow Stables in Virginia. When her father becomes too ill to tend to his horses, Penny agrees to take over the stables despite her inexperience. Desperate, she turns to veteran horse trainer Lucien Laurin (Malkovich) to help show her the ropes. Up to this point, horse racing has been a decidedly male-dominated sport. But with Lucien's help, Penny prepares to prove that gender has no bearing on one's ability to breed a fast race horse. As Secretariat blasts out of the gates to leave his competition in the dust, the whole world watches in amazement, and a legend is born.
