When I would tear up during the trailers of Dreamer, I knew I was in trouble. I celebrated the running of the Breeder's Cup this weekend, by seeing this heart-warming film. A wonderful cast, along with the beautiful horse, Sacrifice, bring a true sports story to life. This is the typical, "we're down, now we're up" story, but instead of being cliche, it felt real. The themes of family, friendship, loyalty, and perseverance are strong. The writing is excellent, the acting, outstanding, and this is the second film I've seen set in Kentucky this month!!! I love watching a dramatic come-from-behind horse race even if it is staged, this film does not disappoint. The animals are magnificent! This was a 2 tissue film for me, I really enjoyed it!!
