“Secretariat” is a 2010 American biographical sports drama film directed by Randall Wallace and starring Diane Lane, John Malkovich, and Scott Glenn. The film tells the story of the legendary racehorse Secretariat, who in 1973 became the first Triple Crown winner in 25 years.
The film follows the journey of Penny Chenery (Diane Lane), the owner of Secretariat, as she navigates the male-dominated world of horse racing and works to transform Secretariat from an inexperienced colt into a champion racehorse. With the help of trainer Lucien Laurin (John Malkovich) and jockey Ron Turcotte (Otto Thorwarth), Penny and Secretariat set their sights on winning the Triple Crown.
“Secretariat” received mixed reviews from critics, with some praising the performances of the cast and the film’s inspirational message, while others criticized its formulaic plot and lack of depth. However, the film was a moderate commercial success, grossing over $60 million worldwide. The real-life Secretariat remains one of the most beloved and iconic racehorses in American history, and the film is a tribute to his incredible legacy.
