In Nashville, May is the season for steeplechase horse racing among the society crowd. As a bit of counter-programming, Vine Street at the Movies will gather to watch an inspirational documentary about a Welsh barmaid who beat the odds (along with a village of supporters) in raising a racing contender. Join us for Dark Horse on May 3 at 7 p.m. in the Bridal Room. (Fancy hats not required.) This film is rated PG.
Brad Wheeler of The Globe and Mail says Dark Horse is “…a likeable and well-crafted documentary about the working-class townspeople of a scruffy Welsh village who pooled their [meager] resources to breed a thoroughbred. Director Louise Osmond puts her money down on the equine-loving pub-goers who ponied up to pay for a dream that had little chance of paying off.”
Always a free event, Jim Carls is the host of Vine Street at the Movies.
