Synopsis: The story of a Depression-era racehorse with a whole lot of heart and the people surrounding him.
The first part of the movie (before Seabiscuit came in) was a touch too long but the acting was good and the story was very good. I understand now how this horse captured America's imagination. Worth watching.
I liked how, in some cases, there was great buildup to a traumatic event, but the event itself was not shown, only the outcome. And I particularly enjoyed the black & white historical bits. Bridges played his part quite well and Maguire bugged me, but overall I really enjoyed it. Definitely worth watching.Added 26 October 2004 at 9:32 PM
