After raves at Sundance, DREAM HORSE will see a Canadian release! We loved the Documentary DARK HORSE so much and are thrilled to see it all again in this Adaptation of the Film starring Toni Collette!
Synopsis: DREAM HORSE tells the true story of Jan Vokes, (Academy Award® nominee Toni Collette) a Welsh cleaner and bartender, who decides to breed and rear a racehorse. She persuades her neighbors and friends to contribute financially to the goal. The group’s unlikely investment plan pays off as the horse rises through the ranks and puts them in a race for the national championship.
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.
