    Without giving anything away, but could someone tell me what's it's about. All I know is it's about some horse, but what's the story behind it?

    I know it's released tomorrow. Is it worth buying a copy?

    I enjoyed it. Based on a true story of an underdog race horse called Seabiscuit, it's too-tall, blind-in-one-eye jockey, the oddball trainer and the car dealer owner. Americans know of Seabiscuit as the most famouse race horse in US history who during the depression inspired a nation and got more newspaper coverage even than Roosevelt and Hitler.
    Obiously not a film to put on if you're in the mood for an Armageddon type experience but if you want an interesting, exciting and true story, it's worth 2 hours of anyone's time.
