Friday, 15th October, 7.30pm – “Dream Horse” (PG).
Directed by Euros Lyn & starring Toni Collette & Damian Lewis, it tells the story of Jan Vokes, a cleaner and bartender, recruits her reluctant husband Brian and local accountant Howard Davies to help her bring together a syndicate of villagers to breed a foal – which they raise on an allotment and name Dream Alliance. On the racetrack, he proves himself to be more than a match for the multi-million-pound race horses he comes up against – a true working-class champion, taking on the establishment at their own game. But much more than this, Dream begins to alter the lives of everyone in the syndicate, not least Jan’s. He is everything to her: friend, confidant and an escape from a life of always putting other people’s needs first.
Dream Horse is a classic story of triumph against adversity and a tale of how a woman strives to make her dream a reality in a place where hope is thin on the ground.

Directed by James Mangold. Matt Damon and Christian Bale star in this “thunderously exciting” (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone) film based on the remarkable true story about Ford Motor Company’s attempt to create the world’s fastest car. American car designer Carroll Shelby (Damon) and the fearless British-born driver Ken Miles (Bale) together battle corporate interference and the laws of physics to build a revolutionary race car and take on Enzo Ferrari at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in France in 1966.
Directed by Chloé Zhao and starring Frances McDormand, Nomadland follows Fern (Frances McDormand) who, following the closure of a gypsum mine in the Nevada town she calls home, packs her van and sets off on the road. Exploring an unconventional life as a modern-day nomad, Fern discovers a resilience and resourcefulness unlike any she’s known before. Along the way, she meets other nomads who become mentors in the vast landscape of the American West. On Friday, 16th July Broadwindsor’s Film Club extended their invitation to include guests, for the first time since the Covid-19 pandemic began, at their film ‘Ammonite‘.
