Brad Wheeler Globe and Mail This is a small, sentimental and straightforward film that offers little in the way of surprises. Instead, it wins on heart and a simple message about the value in fighting to keep one's dreams alive. Aug 4, 2021 Full Review Wenlei Ma News.com.au "Hywl" is a Welsh word that is described on-screen as a "feeling of emotional motivation and energy" - and Dream Horse has certainly imbued its likeable story with plenty of "hwyl". Rated: 3/5 Jun 13, 2021 Full Review Stephen Romei The Australian This is a character-driven movie and the horse is not the main character... Rated: 3.5/5 Jun 11, 2021 Full Review Chase Hutchinson The Sunbreak (Seattle, WA) It is only a supposed telling as it is primarily built around, at best, shallow re-creations, and, at worst, an active jettisoning of what should have been its most compelling aspects. Rated: 1.5/4 Aug 18, 2022 Full Review Victoria Luxford City AM A good drama that has the misfortune of coming after a fascinating documentary. Dark Horse will be the place to go to hear the story from those it happened to, but taken on its own merits this is the light, feel-good movie many of us might need this year. Rated: 3/5 Mar 2, 2022 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review The movie manages to be exactly what you would expect based on its logline, but it fulfills every expectation with crowd-pleasing confidence. Rated: 3/4 Feb 12, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews
