One of the greatest race horses of all time stars in the latest Disney film to hit theaters for a sneak preview this weekend. The film stars Diane Lane as Penny Chenery who returns to her Virginia family home to help her ailing father after the loss of his wife and saves the family's horse business and reputation with the birth of a new foal that grows up and ultimately goes on to win the triple crown. Other cast notables are John Malkovich as Lucien Lauren the trainer, Margo Martindale as Mrs Ham the farm manager, and Nelsan Ellis as Eddie Sweat the horse's handler, who most will recognize as Lafayette from True Blood. Disney always deliveries in its bio pics and this one does not disappoint with re-enactments being augmented with actual footage from the time that I recall seeing live when I was a child. A great family film that make me nostalgic remembering watching all of the Disney classic films and cartoons on TV Sunday nights during The Wonderful World of Disney - good times.
