Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Dark Horse is a Welsh documentary that tells the inspiring story of a group of mostly poor mineworkers who pooled 10 pounds per week to successfully breed, train, and race a thoroughbred horse, inserting themselves into a realm ordinarily reserved for the wealthy and titled. Adults are seen drinking alcohol in many pub scenes, and a few scenes could be upsetting to sensitive animal lovers -- horses and jockeys fall during races, and there's discussion of putting injured animals down. But ultimately this is a celebration of perseverance and the triumph of the underdog.
Horses and jockeys fall during races. Dream falls and cuts a tendon, an injury that would normally result in putting the horse down.
"Bloody," "shove it."
Rewards can come to those who follow their dream, even in the face of predicted failure. Ordinary people can experience moments of greatness. Perseverance pays off. Triumph of the underdog.
