Review: Secretariat

A bit of pure simply joy

Yes, my jaw was aching when I left the theatre. This is a feel good movie. No sex, no drugs, no special effects - just a well told story of a truly amazing horse (another history lesson). This is not a movie I would normally have bothered seeing, but I'm glad I did. Although I haven't been to the races for years I actually felt the lump in my through and the adrenalin rush as the Secretariat galloped to the finish. The old guy in front of me was so into it he clapped. What a pity so many 'sophisticated' movie goers probably won't be seeing this Disney breath of freshness. Who couldn't do with a bit of pure simple joy in their lives?
