Dream Horse (2020) is based on the true story (and documentary - Dark Horse) of Janet Vokes (Toni Collette), a former whippet breeder and pigeon fancier from the Welsh village of Cefn Fforest, who organised a community syndicate to buy a racehorse.
It’s a wise investment, as the horse turns out to be a winner and a symbol of hope in Cefn Fforest, an economically depressed former mining village in Wales.
The Guardian review says “Yes, it’s schmaltzy, very schmaltzy, but with strong performances by Toni Collette and Damian Lewis the odds are that you’ll love it”.
