SEC­RE­TAR­IAT

Pasatiempo - - Moving Images - (Lau­rel Glad­den)

This feel-good Dis­ney pro­duc­tion re­counts the true story of Penny Chen­ery (Diane Lane), a house­wife in late-’60s Den­ver. De­spite a lack of knowl­edge about the male-dom­i­nated busi­ness, she takes over her fam­ily’s Vir­ginia horse farm when her fa­ther’s health fails. Along with trainer Lu­cien Lau­rin ( John Malkovich), groom Ed­die Sweat (Nel­san El­lis), and jockey Ron Tur­cotte (Otto Thor­warth), she raises and trains Sec­re­tar­iat. This is an old-fash­ioned fam­ily-friendly film, de­void of any­thing scan­dalous, con­tro­ver­sial, or es­pe­cially in­ter­est­ing. Rated PG. 116 min­utes. Re­gal Sta­dium 14, Santa Fe; Dream Catcher, Es­pañola; Sto­ry­teller, Taos.
