Seabiscuit – Edited
A great American story from Academy Award – nominated filmmaker Gary Ross, Seabiscuit stars Tobey Maguire, Jeff Bridges and Chris Cooper. Based on the inspiring true story of three men – a jockey, a trainer and a businessman – and the undersized racehores who took the entire nation on the ride of a lifetime.
I have to admit that I saw this film when it first came out in theaters and found it to carry a wonderful story that was inspiring but was marred by a ton of crude, obscene and profane language. I walked out of the theater expressing my disappointment that the film-maker chose to include that type of language which reduced my enjoyment of the film. This edited version takes care of all that so you can sit back and enjoy this uplifting story without being bombarded with foul language. I really enjoyed the way Gary Ross used the documentary style, giving the history of the times, making the film much more authentic. William H Macey gives a wonderful performance as a wacky radio announcer. “Seabiscuit” will bring out your desire to root for the underdog, the down and out and what history has shown us makes this country great, the American Spirit.
