Secretariat is about the legendary horse whose Triple Crown Win has never been beaten. It is a sports drama. The story actually revolves around the horse’s owner, Penny Tweedy, who breaks through social barriers to see her horse achieve fame. It is being distributed by Walt Disney. It contains no questionable content. It is based on a true story about a topic that is interesting to horse lovers everywhere.

Secretariat is not the typical Disney children’s movie, but it is informative and interesting for preteens through teenagers. Parent’s info for this movie: it would probably not have the necessary appeal for children under 10, but it would not be ill advised for this age group. It is fascinating and deals with the “glass ceiling” and gender concepts of the early 1970s. It is about realizing a dream, not giving up and letting nothing get in the way of our dreams. It is a heartwarming story about this famous horse. This family movie would be appropriate for children of all ages, but would probably only be interested to tweens, or above.
