When I first of this movie coming out, I thought, “I could care less about Horse-Racing, and it’s got Tobey Maguire. Ugh.” However, Seabiscuit made me change my mind. Based on the bestselling novel by Laura Hillenbrand, Seabiscuit takes its audience through a captivating story of relentlessly clinging to hope, despite what the evidence says. This film features stunning cinematography, exceptional performances from Chris Cooper and Tobey Maguire, and a story that’s so interesting, it had to be true. Also, a surprise appearance by William H. Macy, one of my favorites. Overall, just a great movie for anyone, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see it win the oscar.
