Movie Reviews

  • this is a well-cast, artfully handled effort that exercises sufficient restraint to really earn its requisite laughter and tears
    by Dennis Harvey [Variety ]
  • the story of Dream Alliance is the subject of the 2015 documentary, "Dark Horse"; and in "Dream Horse", director Euros Lyn infuses the tale with a warm sense of humor and heart, thrilling emotional stakes and a deeply felt sense of Welsh pride
    3 of 4 by Katie Walsh [Tribune News Service ]
  • the film attempts to deliver an emotional, compelling, and entertaining story, but it struggles with balance despite some lovely, uplifting moments
    2.5 of 5 by Mae Abdulbaki [ScreenRant ]
  • like horse racing, filmmaking is a high-risk gamblers' game, but the team behind "Dream Horse", the resulting dramatization of the Vokes' story, have surely bred a winner with this endearing, determinedly crowd-pleasing adaptation
    by Leslie Felperin [The Hollywood Reporter ]
  • it's lovely to see Toni Collette and Damian Lewis, who are largely known for playing intense, difficult people, bringing genuine life to likable “ordinary” characters
    by Glenn Kenny [New York Times ]
  • Dream Horse's kind spirit makes it watchable and fine, the kind of film meant for lazy days where low stakes dramas feel aptly comforting; it's certainly a story that's genuine enough to earn a few smiles
    2.5 of 5 by Jenny Nulf [Austin Chronicle ]
  • at every stage, "Dream Horse" is full of heart and interest. Throughout, Toni Collette makes us believe in the human-animal connection between Jan and Dream Alliance, which is touching, mysterious and deep
    3 of 4 by Mick LaSalle [San Francisco Chronicle ]
  • a stirring underdog story; "Dream Horse" is well-made, compelling, even downright soothing; Tony Collette is an ideal choice to portray the feisty real-life Jan Vokes, a resourceful person in need of a spark in her life and her marriage
    3 of 4 by Randy Myers [San Jose Mercury News ]
  • a satisfyingly sweet true story about a racehorse that beat the odds
    Review rate : B by David Ehrlich [IndieWire ]
  • "Dream Horse" is a very nice movie, about very nice people, but nice is rarely enough; The film is based on a true story, and it's awfully mild, but Toni Collette gives it a humble yet passionate intensity that makes it stick to the ribs
    2.5 of 4 by Ty Burr [Boston Globe ]
  • "Dream Horse" is a rousing true story with heart; Plain and simple, "Dream Horse" just works; Toni Collette's conviction and the earnestness of his storytelling make "Dream Horse" a winner, and a solid bet all around
    Review rate : B by Adam Graham [Detroit News ]
