#SUNDANCE: “DREAM HORSE”
Review by Amanda Gilmore for Mr. Will Wong
In the attempt to find meaning in her life, Jan (Toni Collette), breeds a racehorse in her tiny Welsh town and enters him in once race after another.
This is a hilarious and heart-warming underdog story filled with quintessential British humour. Although the story is quite conventional it’s the way Horse Racing is presented and the brilliant performance from Collette that separates it from the rest. Overall, Director Euros Lyn brings Jan’s true story to the screen in an entertaining and heartfelt way.
Dream Horse screens at Sundance on Fri, Jan. 24th at 8 PM at Rose Wagner Center, Sat, Jan. 25th at 12 PM at The Ray Theatre, Thurs, Jan. 30th at 9 AM at Temple Theatre, Fri, Jan. 31st at 9:30 PM at Rose Wagner Center, and Sat, Feb. 1st at Temple Theatre.
