Odds are looking good for Dream Horse being a ‘feel good’ film. In April you can put that bet when the Toni Collette led film arrives in UK Cinemas.
Today Warner Bros. have released the film’s UK Trailer in this rags to riches film. The film recently made it’s world premiere at last month’s Sundance Film Festival to some positive reviews. After the likes of Hereditary and more recently Knives Out we do love what Toni Collette delivers.
This film Collette stars as Jan a cleaner/ Bar woman who hires a local accountant with her husband along with local people to breed a foal. Gradually that horse to become a champion horse to race against those multinational owned horses…
Jan Vokes, a cleaner and bartender, recruits her initially reluctant husband Brian and local accountant Howard Davies to help her bring together a syndicate of local people to breed a foal – which they name Dream Alliance. On the racetrack, he proves himself to be more than a match for the multi-million pound racehorses he comes up against – a true working-class champion, taking on the establishment at their own game. But much more than this, Dream begins to alter the lives of everyone in the syndicate, not least Jan’s. He is everything to her: friend, confidant and an escape from a life of always putting other people’s needs first.
Dream Horse is a classic story of triumph against adversity, and a tale of how a woman strives to make her dream a reality in a place where hope is thin on the ground.
The film also stars Damian Lewis, Owen Teale, Joanna Page, Karl Johnson, with Nicholas Farrell and Siân Phillips.
Dream Horse will be released nationwide 17th April 2020/
