A movie with Dakota Fanning, Kurt Russell, Kris Kristofferson, Elizabeth Shue and more were in this! Now, if you are thinking hey that movie came out five years ago, you would be absolutely right! Five years ago I didn't reside in Kentucky, let alone Lexington!
The Dreamer was shot right here in Lexington so I am going to go rent this movie tonight!
Here is the story:
Ben Crane believes that a severely injured racehorse deserves another chance. He and his daughter Cale adopt the horse (in fact is a mare)and save it of being sacrificed by the owner. The arrival of the mare to Crane's farm, will be the perfect opportunity for both father and daughter to reconstruct their lost familiar bond. "Soñador" (Dreamer in English), the renamed mare, despite its broken leg, maybe could have another chance to return to the racecourse, with the help of Cale, Ben, and his father, Pop. Written by Alejandro Frias
In Lexington, Kentucky, the horse barn of the family Crane has been empty for years, without any horses, due to the financial difficulties of the family. When the female horse Sonya, a.k.a. Sonador (Dreamer, in English) breaks one foreleg in a race, the owner Palmer decides to sacrifice the animal, but Ben Crane accepts the injured horse as part of three months salaries owed by Palmer. His daughter Cale becomes very connected with Sonya, and while the horse is rehabilitated, the wounds in the Crane family are also healed. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
