ON FILM: 50 to 1
Charles talks with actor Christian Kane and writer, producer, and director of the film "50 to 1," Jim Wilson. The film tells the remarkable story of the racehorse Mine That Bird and his unlikely victory at the 2009 Kentucky Derby. Kane & Wilson talk about getting to know the real-life characters and feeling the responsibility to keep the story authentic. They also talk about their bus tour across the U.S., which almost exactly follows Mine That Bird's route to Kentucky. The film and the tour are passion projects of both the director and the film's actors. "50 to 1" opens April 4. https://www.facebook.com/50to1themovie
