Dark Horse: The Incredible True Story Of Dream Alliance Review

Image for Dark Horse: The Incredible True Story Of Dream Alliance

A Welsh village team up to breed and train a racehorse to the point it can compete in the Grand National, taking on the horses of millionaires and monarchs.

★★★★★

This gleeful documentary mixes characterful talking heads with reconstructions to tell the uplifting story of the gangly horse named Dream Alliance owned by a working class Welsh collective. Twists are signalled strongly, but it’s hard not to be won over.

It's hard not to be seduced by this folky yarn.
