THE MOVIE

Took the two girl munchkins to see Secretariat.

Very good movie which I would highly recommend.

There were some parts that were kind of over their head, but they got the overall point about the racing and the 9yo said it was her favorite movie ever.

It does start with a sad scene with the mom dying, and then the dad gets sick and also eventually dies.

But it is a true story and sometimes life is sad.

Another part that was rather sad (but I don’t know that a kid would pick up on it) is the lack of support from the father. In fact, the Tweedys were divorced within the year.

A cool addition to the movie – the real Penny Chenery played a bit part.
