Best Drama Films of 2021

The Reason I Jump and Dream Horse

by Gingersnap | damian-lewis.com | October 7, 2021

‘The Week’ UK has recently published their best drama films of 2021 and I noticed not one, but two that Damian Lewis either starred in or advocated for charity in this top 35 list.

Back on January 25 of this year we reported that Damian conducted an online talk with Director Jerry Rothwell, author David Mitchell (who co-translated Higashida’s book) and producer Stevie Lee for an illuminating conversation about the making of the extraordinary documentary film, The Reason I Jump. Ticket proceeds of the virtual event went to the charity 92nd Street Y to help sustain their community organization and support the creation of new, online educational programming in literature, culture and the arts, as they were facing tremendous financial loss due to CoVid-19.  You can view photos of that online event in our Gallery here.

Memories of Damian Lewis and Toni Collette Filming Dream Horse in Blaenavon

Memories of When Hollywood Came to Blaenavon

Viewers from Blaenavon might just recognise some local landmarks, or even themselves.

Dream Horse follows Jan Vokes, from Cefn Fforest, who brought together a syndicate of local people to breed a foal, named Dream Alliance, raising him on an allotment and going on to win the Welsh Grand National at Chepstow Racecourse in 2009.

Filming took place in Blaenavon in May 2019, with many residents taking up the call to appear as extras in the film.

Following the release of the film, a number of residents have shared their memories of being involved in the production. Here are just a few.

Dream Horse Coming to DVD and Blu-Ray

Pre-Order Now

by Simon Brew| Film Stories | June 7, 2021

We reported earlier here that Dream Horse will be available on Video on Demand (VoD) in the US on Friday, July 11, 2021. Film Stories reports the new live action family film is getting a physical disc release in September as well.

Good new live action family movies are hardly in bountiful supply, and thus it feels like a treat at the moment to have two of them playing in cinemas. One of those films is Disney’s Cruella, but the one that shouldn’t be allowed to fly under the metaphorical radar is Dream Horse.

Starring Toni Collette, Damian Lewis and Owen Teague, it tells the real life story of a woman who persuades a bunch of her friends and fellow villagers in Wales to chip in for a race horse. And whilst the movie itself probably goes where you expect it too, it’s all done really rather well.

The film is currently playing in UK cinemas, but it’s also gone up for preorder on DVD and Blu-ray. If you fancy getting yourself a copy, you can do so here. The film will be released on disc on September 13th of this very year. However, Amazon UK DVD/Blu-Ray states release is December 31, 2021. Or, pre-order your copy directly from Warner Brothers UK shop here.
