Film Review: Diane Lane a Champion in Literal Horse Opera ‘Secretariat’

Chicago – In real life, we cling to the notion that the inconceivable can happen, that magical probability can penetrate the mendacity of everyday existence, but it rarely if ever happens. That is what makes the new film “Secretariat” so appealing, that 37 years ago the impossible did happen, through the heart of a horse and his believers. Diane Lane and John Malkovich lead the charge.

Rating: 4.0/5.0

Secretariat is the horse that won the Triple Crown of racing (Kentucky Derby, Preakness, Belmont Stakes) back in 1973, and did it in a fashion that has yet to be equalled. Although it seems that everyone would know this story, the power of the achievement had been lost, until this film found it again. With the feel (complete with wooden dialogue) of a 1940s studio film, Secretariat brings together the characters, settings and drama that only a true story can muster.

Diane Lane is Penny Chenery,

Box office preview: 'A Christmas Carol' set to bring some cheer to the box office

Feeling merry? Disney and Robert Zemeckis sure hope so as they prepare to unload the technologically obsessed filmmaker's vision of Dickens' classic holiday tale, A Christmas Carol, in over 3,500 theaters (2,000 of which will be 3-D). Carol starring Jim Carrey may be Zemeckis' most successful debut using his beloved motion-capture technology -- which seems to have finally overcome the "hollowed eyes" criticism that befell his earlier attempts like Polar Express and Beowulf. Now it's really just going to come down to how many people are ready for some Christmas spirit this early in the fall season. (Some of us still haven't disposed of our jack-o'-lantern remains.
