The Other Story
I recently watched Disney's Secretariat and this movie is about so much more than horse racing. It's about a woman calling the shots during a time when a woman's place is meant to be only at home. It's a movie about legacy, family, taking risks, and believing in your dreams. A movie or book is exceptional when your heart is one hundred percent pulling for your characters. When Secretariat runs his last race there were tears in my eyes and my fingers were digging into the couch. And even though I finished the movie thirty minutes ago, I'm still on this fictional high. What a feeling. I can only hope to write something one day that evokes so much emotion.
