SECRETARIAT ( G)★★★■
Stars: Diane Lane, John Malkovich
Available: Now on DVD and BD
SPORT films that work succeed because of an underdog story but here we have one that mildly works while focusing on the out-and-out superstar horse Secretariat, which came to prominence in the 1970s in the US when it won a bunch of big races. The story is inspiring but told in that popular, very Disney, very family way where everything is cliched and safe.
Extras:★★½ Featurette on the famous horse – complete with owner interview and some archival race footage, plus deleted scenes with optional director’s commentary and music video.
