"A decade ago, in a small village they shared a dream…" Sony Pictures Classics has unveiled a new trailer for the documentary Dark Horse, about an actual race horse, from filmmaker Louise Osmond. The film follows the inspirational story of a group of friends at a small club who breed a racehorse that is seen as the underdog that won't ever win. The film won the big Audience Award in the World Cinema Documentary category at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, and we featured the first trailer for this earlier in the year. This trailer does a nice job of introducing the characters and explaining the story, and I can't wait to see this doc, I've been looking forward to it ever since Sundance. Just watch this trailer and learn more about the story.
Here's the new official trailer for Louise Osmond's documentary Dark Horse, in high def on Apple:
Louise Osmond's documentary, titled in full Dark Horse: The Incredible True Story Of Dream Alliance, is the inspirational true story of a group of friends from a working men's club who take on the elite 'sport of kings' and breed themselves a racehorse. The film first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, where it won the Audience Award in the World Cinema Documentary category. The film comes out of the UK and will be released first over there. Film4 will release Dark Horse: The Incredible True Story Of Dream Alliance in the UK and Ireland starting April 17th, 2015. Sony Pictures Classics will release the doc in the US starting on May 6th, 2016 next summer. For extra info, follow the film on Facebook. Thoughts?
Really like the look of this.

Sorry, I find it too difficult support horse racing in any form. Maybe there are some places that do it "ethically", but yeah...

That's a fair point David, watching animals run really fast with a human on their back is a pretty stupid way to pass any sort of time. Maybe for that community for a small period it took their mind of the impending alcoholism, violence and suicide that most closed mining towns have to deal with. The world is shit.

Horse believes on himself and wins a hard race... Did I miss anything else?

I'm in. This seems to have some strong story elements that work for me. So I'm in. Anyone else who thinks this looks interesting should watch PALIO. Available on VOD now and a great doc!
