DARK HORSE opening at the Cinema Art Theater
The Rehoboth Beach Film Society’s Cinema Art Theater will present the inspirational true story documentary opening on July 29th.
Set in a former mining village in Wales, a group of friends from a working men's club decide to take on the elite 'sport of kings' and breed themselves a racehorse. Raised on a slagheap allotment, their foal, Dream Alliance, grows into an unlikely champion, beating the finest thoroughbreds in the land, before suffering a near fatal accident. Nursed back to health by the love of his owners - for whom he's become a source of inspiration and hope – Dream Alliance makes a remarkable recovery. Discovering if the recovery can extend to the track is a heart-stopping experience. [2015, UK, Runtime: 85 min, Rated: PG]
