See the Oscar-nominated drama, Seabiscuit, starring Jeff Bridges and Tobey Maguire, followed by an onstage discussion with award-winning New York Times sportswriter, Joe Drape! Part of our Journalism on Screen series. This screening is co-presented by UA Race Track Industry Program.

Based on the bestselling book by Laura Hillebrand, the multiple Oscar-nominated drama Seabiscuit tells the inspiring true story of one of the most successful racehorses in history. In the midst of the Great Depression, a businessman (Jeff Bridges) coping with the tragic death of his son, a partially blind boxer-turned-jockey (Tobey Maguire) and a down-and-out horse trainer (Chris Cooper) team up to help Seabiscuit, a temperamental, undersized racehorse. At first the horse struggles to win, but eventually Seabiscuit becomes one of the most successful thoroughbreds of all time, and inspires a nation at a time when it needs it most. Co-starring Elizabeth Banks, William H. Macy and real-life jockeys Gary Stevens and Chris McCarron, and nominated for seven Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Seabiscuit is a lovingly-crafted, crowd-pleasing Cinderella story.

Joe Drape is an award-winning sportswriter for The New York Times. He has been writing about the intersection of sports, culture and money since starting at the Times in 1998. He has also pursued these lines reporting as a book author, most recently in the New York Times bestsellers “American Pharaoh: The Untold Story of the Triple Crown Champion’s Legendary Rise” and “Our Boys: A Perfect Season on the Plains with Smith Center Redmen.” Drape’s work has been honored nationally by the Associated Press Sports Editor, and he is a two-time Eclipse Award-winner for outstanding coverage in thoroughbred racing.

Journalism on Screen is an ongoing series combining films that explore the world of journalism with lively discussions with experts and industry professionals. Presented by The New York Times, Arizona Daily Star, Arizona Daily Wildcat, University of Arizona College of Social and Behavioral Sciences, University of Arizona School of Journalism, Arizona Inn and The Loft Cinema.
