Oscar-nominee Toni Collette stars in this inspiring comedy/drama, based on the true story of Dream Alliance, an unlikely race horse that brings a small South Wales community together in unexpected ways.
“Endearing entertainment, crowned by the reliably excellent Toni Collette.” – Leslie Felperin, Hollywood Reporter
In a sleepy working-class town, Jan Vokes (Collette) struggles to find meaning in her life while waiting tables at the local pub. One night, a chance encounter with an arrogant customer, Howard Davies (Damian Lewis), a former racehorse syndicate leader, inspires her to take on a new challenge. Despite her parents’ skepticism, Jan recruits neighbors and barflies alike into a crazy scheme to contribute their meager earnings to a community fund and breed a racehorse. After a rocky start, Dream Alliance—the horse and the syndicate—is born. After the horse wins one race after another, the syndicate’s success enriches the lives of all its members, giving them a sense of purpose they had never imagined before. Buoyed by a winning, strong-willed performance by Toni Collette, Dream Horse, which premiered at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival, infuses this miraculous, real-life underdog story with warmth, humor and exuberance. (Dir. by Euros Lyn, 2020, UK, 113 mins., Rated PG)
