All Eyes on Toni Collette and the Unexpected “Dream Horse”

After a year on edge, we could all use a pick-me-up to help relieve the pent-up stress. Enter Dream Horse, a heartfelt family film that radiates positive energy and smiles.

Directed by Euros Lyn (BBC One's Doctor Who), Dream Horse tells the true story of Dream Alliance, an unlikely racehorse curated from a struggling community's hard work and dedication. Lead by small-town bartender Jan Vokes (Toni Collette); a community will chip in together in hopes of competing with the high rollers in one of the world’s most expensive industries.

The just-released trailer provides a plot-heavy look at the film, which appears to possess a soft, innocent, and kind tone as it showcases the love and support a horse can bring to a group of willful dreamers.

Co-starring Damian Lewis, Owen Teale, and Joanna Page, Dream Horse hits theaters May 21 before a VOD release on June 11.


About Stephen Davis

Stephen Davis
I owe this hobby/career to the one and only Stephanie Peterman who, while interning at Fox, told me that I had too many opinions and irrelevant information to keep it all bottled up inside. I survived my first rated R film, Alive, at the ripe age of 8, it took me months to grasp the fact that Julia Roberts actually died at the end of Steel Magnolias, and I might be the only person alive who actually enjoyed Sorority Row…for its comedic value of course. While my friends can drink you under the table, I can outwatch you when it comes iconic, yet horrid 80s films like Adventures in Babysitting and Troop Beverly Hills. I have no shame when it comes to what I like, and if you have a problem with that, then we’ll settle it on the racquetball court. I see too many movies to actually win any film trivia contest, so don’t waste your first pick on me. My friends rent movies from my bookcase shelves, and one day I do plan to start charging. I long to live in LA, where my movie obsession will actually help me fit in, but for now I am content with my home in Austin. I prefer indies to blockbusters, Longhorns to Sooners and Halloween to Friday the 13th. I miss the classics, as well as John Ritter, and I hope to one day sit down and interview the amazing Kate Winslet.
