Seabiscuit was wrongly perceived as being a misfit racehorse, but he overcame great odds and became a folk hero at the height of the Great Depression. In addition to telling this true-life story of a champion horse, this film also tells the tale of three men who were broken by life but saw their lives gain new meaning when Seabiscuit showed them how to rise above overwhelming obstacles with much steadfastness and determination.

Ask Yourself:

- How did you feel when you observed the main characters’ determination and endurance?
- How and where in your life could you adopt this attitude?
- How would this make you feel? How would it affect your self-esteem?
