IFI welcomes back Wild Strawberries, our film club for older audiences.

For our first WS outing since closure, we have this sparkling comedy drama, which will have you smiling and rooting for the underdog right from the start. Dream Alliance is an unlikely racehorse, bred by Welsh small-town bartender, Jan Vokes (Toni Collette in riproaring form). With the village needing a lift in spirits, Jan persuades the locals to chip in to help train the horse. Based on a true story, the rise of Dream through the ranks boosts even the most begrudging supporter, and the village unites in cheering on the determined outsider to compete in the Welsh Grand National.

Fun, fresh and feel-good, Dream Horse reminds us how there’s nothing to beat the shared laughter in cinema.
