Dream Horse (out Jun 10) is based on actual events and is the tale of a Welsh woman who, looking for meaning in her life, convinces an eclectic group of townsfolk to start a horse racing syndicate. This film seems scared of conflict (it's all a bit too "nice") and is so stuffed full of sentimentality that it’s almost impossible to consume. Still, it's watchable thanks to the performances of the cast with Toni Collette giving it her all. Grade: B-.
