Christopher Scott Zeidel's rating of the film Secretariat

The title of this film is bizarre and misleading. This isn't about Secretariat, horses, or horse racing even though some of that is present. It is a feminist piece centering on Diane Lane's character and how she fights her way through a male dominated society. Unfortunately, it is shallow, predictable, and lacks tension. I hope some day a filmmaker will direct a picture about Secretariat.
