Secretariat (♦♦♦♦)

When her mother dies unexpectedly, Penny Chenery (Diane Lane) has to go to her family farm and take care of the horse breeding family business. Penny’s brother favors selling the farm, but Penny bets her housewife reputation on her horse nicknamed Secretariat, which becomes the 1973 Triple Crown winner, the first horse to achieve that feat in more than 25 years.

This is a great family movie: safe topic and even safer use of language. Despite having a predictable ending, it gets your adrenaline pumping as only sports can do. It’s nice to know that you’ve been offered eight million dollars and after declining the offer being proved right.
