“Dream Horse” (Amazon or Apple TV)

If you are looking for thoroughly enjoyable diversion from the stresses of daily life, I strongly urge you to check out this lovely film. Tony Colette and a few other recognizable British actors star in a kind of bio-pic set in Wales and England. Briefly it’s about an alliance of the denizens of a working class small town who become the owners of a race horse. Of course it’s about so much more than that (it’s why we turn toward feel good stories– to give us hope for the human condition). I just learned about a highly rated documentary of the same story (“Dark Horse”) which I plan to watch. I am intrigued by the question of why a narrative film was made. The differences between the two would make for an interesting conversation. LMK your thoughts.
