A beautifully directed movie by Gary Ross about the courageous true story of a little horse with spirit, determination, and attitude who not only beat odds after odds of becoming a champion racehorse, but who did so with such profoundness that is nothing short of a miracle and an inspiration to the world!
The jockey "Red" Pollard (Tobey Maguire), the family man and millionaire, Charles Howard, (Jeff Bridges) and the cowboy and gifted horse trainer, Tom Smith (Chris Cooper), all have something incredibly aching inside them to be shown through this story. This is a story about how three men overcame more than their share of pain, in a time where one of the most devastating disasters happened during the Depression-era and the one amazing horse that brought them all together to see the glory of all their dreams come true and how it changed all of their lives for the better.
Not only is this a story about fighting for your dreams, but it's a story of truly believing in yourself and never, ever giving up on that. It is passionate, heroic, and remarkable.
Seabiscuit is about a horse too small to even be considered as a race horse, a jockey too big to ride, a man once blessed with family and money all taken away from him in a cruel flash and the cowboy lost on his own land, who all learned even more from the opportunity of knowing each other and their special connection to a horse named, Seabiscuit.
Compassionate, compelling, and phenomenal acting by Jeff Bridges, Chris Cooper, Tobey Maguire and William H. Macy who played radio announcer, Tick Tock McGlaughlin, only bring you closer to the heart of this triumph story.
Seabiscuit is an incredible and poignant movie that reaches your heart with its story and by the music of Randy Newman that sinks into every part of your body with perfection.
If you haven't yet seen it, I wholeheartedly recommend that you do. This is one of the year's best movies, one of the best I've seen in years and hope it is deservedly honored as such.
I loved this movie!
