Having recently thrilled audiences as a haywire matriarch in Ari Aster's indie horror Hereditary and entertained us equally as a performative woke relative in Rian Johnson whodunnit Knives Out, it seems there's nothing Toni Collette can't do.
Her newest role sees her, first and foremost, completely master a Welsh accent. The American actress plays bartender and cleaner Jan Vokes, who finds a way to change her life by deciding to breed a racehorse in her small village.
Damien Lewis – who you might remember from early Homeland days – co-stars, in a story that champions community and the idea of one dream being able to fuel a whole tiny nation.
Dream Horse is based on a true story, and seems to have all the markings of a conventional feelgood drama, complete with stirring messages to vitalise an audience in difficult times.
It's been a while since something with the star power of Dream Horse has been coupled with the training of animals as independent as horses – so place your bets for an entertaining vision of some of the world's finest racers, if nothing else.
