Secretariat is one of the most inspiring films to come out in 2010.
At its core, Secretariat remains a tale of perseverance. It's about Penny Chenery [Diane Lane] stepping up against all odds and giving Secretariat the love he needed to become a legend. It's also about trainer Lucien Laurin—John Malkovich in one of his best performances yet—utilizing one-of-a-kind methods to help the horse realize his potential. Then of course, there's Kevin Connolly's Bill Nack who believed just as much as Penny and Lucien and added his own imprint to Secretariat's legacy by covering him with an undeniable and unbreakable passion. The film is also about director Randall Wallace in many ways. Wallace loved the story so much that he wanted to tell it in a different fashion, capturing horseracing up-close-and-personal like it had never been seen on screen before. Wallace also made sure to allow everyone the space to grow with the horse, creating a tale that transcends generations and all boundaries.
The cast of Secretariat—John Malkovich and Kevin Connolly—and filmmaker Randall Wallace sat down with ARTISTdirect.com editor and Dolor author Rick Florino for an exclusive interview about the tale of perseverance at the heart of the film, what's on their respective iPods and, just because, gangsta rap…
