DARK HORSE is an inspirational film that tells the true story of a group of friends in a small Welsh mining community who pool their modest resources to breed and raise a racehorse they dub Dream Alliance.
Against all odds, Dream shows incredible promise, and the team behind him soon find themselves breaking social barriers by competing against some of the wealthiest horse owners in the UK.
Heart warming and thrilling, this remarkable true story about a long shot is a sure winner.
Rated: PG -13
$8 general admission; $7 with Film Buff card plus HST.
"The story is one of those real-life, against-all-odds sagas that almost defies belief, yet the most important elements here are the characters. While the film has an abundance of quirky, colorful British types, two stand out in particular—one human, one equine." — Roger Ebert.com
