If you’re in the mood for something feel-good, go see Disney’s Secretariat.
I laughed. I cried. It was better than Cats.
No, really, I cried. Multiple times. Ugh! If it wasn’t the heart-wrenching, “how do I balance family and career as a woman” dilemma, it was the “bewildered-parent/rebelling-child dynamic” and the “whatever our differences, I’m so proud of you” moment.
Oh, and there are horses! And John Malkovich. Sure, he makes a lousy French-Canadian, but it’s John Malkovich! And Diane Lane. Sweet Diane Lane.
Also, it’s family-friendly. Very family-friendly.
Go see it.
