About the movie:
This movie tells the true story of Secretariat, the 1973 Triple Crown winning race horse and perhaps the greatest race horse of all time. The story tells how Housewife Penny Chenery takes her father's stables to the top of racing. With help from trainer Lucien Laurin, Penny's persistence and faith help her to keep going against all odds.
Much of the movie is based on the book Secretariat: The Making of a Champion by William Nack. The movie was largely filmed in Kentucky and Louisiana.
Secretariat is a very inspiring movie with great acting. It isn't so much a kid movie as there aren't a lot of kids in the movie. However, many older kids will enjoy the story and the horse racing. The movie teaches a great lesson of hard work, patience, and determination.
