I highly suspect that “Mass” will be nominated during the next award season. But it’s not just the acting that is good, it’s the dialogue that makes this story come alive. Nothing is trite. It is all raw. But even the ending, which offers a message of hope and healing, isn’t sappy.
“Dream Horse” isn’t flashy nor is it hilarious, but it is a good, inspiring tale of how an unlikely group of people decided to follow their dreams regardless of how silly or unrealistic they seem to be.
With the “me too” movement not fully in our rear-view mirror, this film is a fictional tale that was built from the very real stories from abusive workplaces and you find yourself asking, “What would I do in this situation?”
