Dream Horse

Dream Horse ★★★

Good stuff. Another movie made by people who knew just what they were making, and didn't try to do anything more; which is fine. This is meant to be a family drama based on a heartwarming story with a critter at the center of it. Plus, horses are great for kids-tweens (well, every age, c'mon), esp. when they're spirited little colts.
I love me some Toni Collette, and she does a nice Welsh mum well. Teale is wonderful, too, but the gashy teeth is jacked to see so much. Ya got yer lovable lush guy who isn't TOO cheese factory. Nice support performances in general. Credit to director Lyn and writer McKay for making a good light family drama. 3.2 stars
