Seabiscuit, the story of a small, downtrodden horse who managed to mesmerize an entire nation, gallops onto the screen Friday. Adapted from the best-selling book by Laura Hillenbrand, the film chronicles how Seabiscuit's unlikely triumphs on the racetrack helped revive Americans' spirits in the latter half of the Depression. Hear filmmaker Gary Ross.
