Damian’s new film Run This Town opens in select theaters across the US on Friday, March 6, 2020, in the following states: New York, Ohio, Michigan, California, Illinois, Texas, Minneapolis, and Washington. You can also view the movie digitally on iTunes for $12.99, Video OnDemand (VOD), and other usual digital suspects. If you search for it on an array of digital or VOD providers you normally use, even your local cable provider with VOD access, you’ll likely find it! For example, Contour with Cox Communications and Spectrum. All you lucky Canadians can see the film at your local movie theatre, so be sure to check showtimes!
Or as Director Ricky Tollman told us,
“BUT if people can catch it in the theater, where the sound is loud, the popcorn’s warm, and the room is dark, they’re in for a treat. Especially because the score by @AdrianYounge and @AliShaheed is THUMPING.”

Following a Dream

The 44th annual Cleveland International Film Festival (CIFF) has announced its opening and closing night films. The festival, which runs from Wednesday, March 25 to Sunday, April 5, 2020 will open with the English dramedy Military Wives and will close it’s final year at Tower City Cinemas at 7 p.m. with Dream Horse, a Welsh movie about Dream Alliance, an unlikely racehorse bred by small-town bartender played by Toni Collette.
Dream Horse, which also stars Damian Lewis, had its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival last month. CIFF had this to say of its Closing Night choice:
“With very little money and no experience, Jan convinces her neighbors to chip in their meager earnings to help raise Dream in the hopes he can compete with the racing elites. The group’s investment pays off as Dream rises through the ranks with grit and determination and goes on to race in the Welsh Grand National, showing the heart of a true champion.”
“It’s a great last film to screen at Tower City,” says Bill Guentzler, CIFF artistic director. “It’s a very inspiring film that shows a group of people can come together and do what they dream of and succeed.”

It Will Make You Chuckle, Cheer, and Maybe Even Tear Up: 7 Out of 10
by Ben Pearson | Slash Film | January 26, 2020
Jane (Toni Collette) is tired. Tired of working multiple jobs in small-town Wales, tired of her boring husband Brian (Owen Teale) who bums around watching TV all day, tired of taking care of her aging parents, tired of the drudgery her life has become. So when Howard (Damian Lewis), a former hotshot racehorse owner, becomes a regular at the bar where she works, Jane is inspired to try her own hand at raising a racehorse – but she needs some help to pull it off. Based on a 2015 documentary called Dark Horse, director Euros Lyn’s Dream Horse is an inspirational, winning sports drama about a small town with big hopes.
The trouble with Jane’s plan is that racehorses are expensive. So she reaches out to the townsfolk to see if they want to form a syndicate, an ownership collective in which they all pay £10 a week for shared rights to the future winnings of their still non-existent racehorse. A coterie of characters shows up to participate, including retirees, local small business owners, and even the town drunk.
