Nine years later, it's still hard to believe this won Best Picture.

I don't see it as 'capturing the generation' or as a time capsule for an era (like The Graduate), as it is being touted as doing.
I can see noms for Screenplay, Picture, Actor, and Supporting (for the kid who plays the twins).
Definitely worth a watch. But I do hope there are better movies to be seen between now and year's end. B+

So well done and I was on the edge of my seat multiple times.
Secretariat is just another Bullshit Disney Feelgood Sports Movie.
It's Remember the Titans / Miracle / Glory Road with horses.
Diane Lane is ballsy! John Malkovich is quirky! I WONDER IF IT WILL ALL WORK OUT???
All of these movies are exactly the same.
vapid cheesy schmaltzy fluff aimed at braindead Flyover State folks who wouldn't know a good movie if it came up behind them and stuck a cattle prod up their ass.
Would/will absolutely laugh in anyone's face who admits paying to see this movie.
