  • Sarah Boslaugh @ The Arts STL
    • Excerpt: There aren’t a lot of surprises in Dream Horse, but the village characters are genially eccentric, the Welsh countryside is beautiful, the racing action is convincing, and the montages are efficient.
  • Andrea Chase @
    • Excerpt: If it sounds formulaic, it is, but elevated by Toni Collette’s passionate performance, and a director Euros Lyn, who understands how to film a horse race for maximum suspense
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: …may please those unfamiliar with the story, but it is a pale imitation of the real one told in the 2015 documentary “Dark Horse.”
  • [New] | Mark Hobin @ Fast Film Reviews
    • Excerpt: Looking for a heartfelt movie that gives you hope? This is a real front-runner.
  • Jared Mobarak @
    • Excerpt: Those motions are as familiar as the struggles on the track, but what else were you expecting from a feel-good movie giving an obscure yet heartfelt tale the Hollywood treatment?

    • Excerpt: Toni Collette leads this equestrian crowd-pleaser that doesn’t meddle with a well-trot formula so much as jockey it to safe, green pastures. Though saddled with cliché, ‘Dream Horse’ succeeds in spite of its narrative irons because of its guileless charm and forthright sincerity.
