Quality film brings to life the true story of Seabiscuit - a thoroughbred with a heart of gold. Laura Hillenbrand really knows how to bring a true story to life (Seabiscuit: An American Legend) and this film adaptation showcases her talent as well as the film crew and actors. Adding the real life footage is a magical touch. Nominated for Best Picture in 2003.

Outstanding!! What a great movie to show the steadfast and determined spirit of a horse, its owner, and the rider!! The best depiction of a theme..."everyone is entitled to a second chance"!!! Highly recommend!!!

bit of a slow start and David McCullough's narration kept throwing me off because it sounded like an episode of American Experience ... but the movie finally came together. It's an amazing story of perseverance and a great metaphor for the American spirit! The archival film and photography reminds us that this is a true story!

I find that this is such an amazing story, based on a real animal!!! I have even viewed some of the documentaries about those involved. For anyone interested, the PBS was the best. Now, I want to return & see this movie again.

This was a great movie and I liked how they mixed in some humor. It was also cool to see the real horse SeaBiscuit race in the special features.

I found this movie to slow in the first 30 mins or so, but stay with it because it does get better and it is worth staying with it. It reminds me of the little engine that could.
