Stream It Or Skip It: ‘Dream Horse’ on VOD, an Unabashedly Feelgood Story Starring Toni Collette as an Earnest Horse Lady
Now on VOD, Dream Horse is the story of Dream Alliance, a race horse with a highly unlikely story, here ripped from the headlines and– wait a second. Looks like we have another BOATS (Based On A True Story) movie on our hands, don’t we? Jan and Brian Vokes and Howard Davies are all real Welsh people, regular folk who found themselves milling among snooty richie-riches when they organized a syndicate for racehorse ownership. Their saga became a 2015 documentary called Dark Horse, and now it’s a full-blown MOVIE-type movie starring Toni Collette. It goes without saying that some of the crazy stuff in this movie actually happened and some of it has been embellished, but will it be a rousing ribbon-winner? Let’s find out.
