    Thebest sports movies aren't really about sports. Dreamer has a few thundering horse races, but its finest moments are beautifully still ones, like the one in which a little girl peeks through a fence to give a lame filly a Popsicle.

Love for an injured animal that could have had its life cut short instead of being given the time, care and love to heal, allowing it to do what it was meant to do... run. A truly heartwarming movie.

    This review contains spoilers, click full review link to view. This movie is so unbelievably predictable. I kid you not, before the movie I guessed the ENTIRE plot when i heard it was about a girl and a race horse. It is so cliche that I guessed each sunset scene, the part where the bad guy tries to buy the horse, the horse being announced last in the choosing of horses to race, and the hopeless race that they suddenly won. I do not believe this is a true story. It's a load of crap. It is an abomination of cinema and pathetic. Full Review »
