What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Secretariat is a 1970s-set biopic about Penny Chenery (Diane Lane) and her extraordinary horse. It very little content that's inappropriate for kids, although very young viewers probably won't be too excited about a horse movie in which the horse doesn't talk. It deals with sexism in the horse-breeding community and a woman's "place" in the business sphere in the early 1970s, but the language is still rather mild (mostly just stuff like "housewife" used derisively, for example). Penny is a fantastic role model for kids -- particularly young women -- and the story is uplifting and educational for families.
