Last night Mr. D and I finally watched the movie Secretariat. It was one we had hoped to see in the theater but never had the opportunity, so it was instantly added to our NetFlix queue. OMGosh. I'm so disappointed we didn't see this one in the theater. It was wonderful!
We loved every.single.second of the film and had such a fun time playing "where are they" as a lot of the movie was filmed in Lexington. Coincidentally, several different scenes were filmed at our wedding reception venue, Spindletop Hall. What's the chance of that? We both thought it was super neat-o to see our reception site in a movie and other than a few minor changes it pretty much looked exactly the same as it did on our wedding day.
Another part of the movie we loved (aside from the amazing film about an incredible true story) was the fashion! SWOON! The movie was set in the 70's, but all of the clothing was classic, equestrian influenced preppiness we would wear today...or at least Mr. D and I would. Seriously. I
John Malkovich in his ascot.
Mr. D so excited about his ascots!
Is it Keeneland season yet?
Have you already seen Secretariat? Did you
cry like a baby weep silently like I did?
If you haven't already seen it I suggest you rent it from Red Box, add it to your NetFlix queue or buy it immediately! It's a great movie for the entire family and will be enjoyed by both gents and ladies. I am adding it to my list of "DVD's I would like to own" and can't wait for Mr. D and I to be sporting our "classic, equestrian prep" fashion at Keeneland this spring!
