Welsh director Euros Lyn helms this crowd-pleasing and unbelievable true story of a village who bought a racehorse via syndicate and went on to win the Welsh Grand National. It might follow a well-trodden path, but with winning performances from the UK’s Damian Lewis and Australian Toni Collette, this is a film you can bet on enjoying.
