Director: Euros Lyn
Starring: Toni Collette, Owen Teale, Alan David
A simple story set in a depressed Welsh village, where bartender Jan (Collette) meets horse racing enthusiast Howard (Damian Lewis). Inspired by their conversation, Jan hatches a plan to create a syndicate and buy a racehorse. However, a simple story does not necessarily have a straightforward journey.
The film, written by Neil McKay, recounts the ups and downs of that journey with lots of humour and emotion. All the elements are in place, many characters have problems, including poverty, depression and gambling addiction. There is even a snooty lord to up the “underdog” ante.
The great cast, which also includes Owen Teale and Siân Phillips, seals the deal. Collette has described the film as “a beautiful story about hope and backing yourself and believing in your dreams”. She is not wrong. Independent.
