"An inspirational, feel-good movie"
★★★★ Any Lea, Daily Star
"The feelgood Brit-com is back!"
★★★★ Kevin Maher, The Times
"The resulting movie may be a bit schmaltzy - actually, a lot schmaltzy - but I couldn't help enjoying it: like Chariots of Fire, only with horses."
★★★★ Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
"The vital race scenes are well staged, Lyn ratchets up both tension and Welshness to good effect and if you don't come out singing 'Why, why, why...?' I'll be very surprised."
★★★★ Matthew Bond, The Mail on Sunday
Dream Horse is the true story of one woman’s extraordinary ambition to breed and raise a champion racehorse in her home village. Jan Vokes (Toni Collette), a cleaner and barmaid, manages to persuade her neighbours and friends to invest in her crazy scheme and together they name the foal ‘Dream Alliance’. With little experience but a lot of heart, the collective of villagers rear “Dream” and against all odds he rises through the ranks. “Dream” proves himself to be more than a match for the multi-million pound racehorses he comes up against – he’s a true people’s champion, taking on the establishment at their own game. But more than this, “Dream” begins to alter the lives of everyone in this small community, not least Jan’s. He is everything to her: friend, confidant and an escape from her everyday life.
Dream Horse is a powerful story of triumph over adversity and a tale of how a woman strives to make her dream a reality, and unites her entire community.
