DARK HORSE

Director: Louise Osmond, UK, 2015, 87 minutes; rated G

“A TRUE WINNER AND GENUINE CROWDPLEASER, A HUMAN STORY TOLD WELL THROUGH ONE INCREDIBLE ANIMAL."  Indiewire 

This account of Welsh villagers who team up to sponsor a race horse that surprises everyone by turning out a winner, has all the elements of crowd-pleasing Britflicks such as “The Full Monty,” “Billy Elliott” and “Pride.”

It would be hard for any fictional treatment to beat the pleasures of Louise Osmond's genial, enthralling documentary. The story is one of those real-life, against-all-odds sagas that almost defies belief, yet the most important elements here are the characters. While the film has an abundance of quirky, colorful British types, two stand out in particular—one human, one equine.

The biped is a twinkly-eyed, middle-aged woman named Jan Vokes who works as a barmaid in a depressed Welsh village. Horse racing is a sport that’s belonged to the aristocracy for centuries, but Jan has a idea. The expenses are more than she could afford, obviously, but what if a group of friends shared them?

She quickly assembles a team of allies. The horse, named Dream Alliance, eventually gets entered in a race and astonishes his backers by coming in fourth. But very soon, the real astonishment arrives: Dream wins a high-profile race.

One of the film’s most resonant pleasures is the friendship and solidarity these unostentatious Welsh folk share; they remain warm-spirited and loyal to each other through thick and thin.

Jan Vokes’ irrepressible sense of fun—which encompasses realizing her whole enterprise’s absurd improbability—sets the film’s light-hearted, engaging tone.

The film’s equine star, Dream, also seems to harbor reserves of wit and playfulness. He’s certainly a star, and easily one of the most memorable characters you’re likely to see in a movie this year. –RogerEbert.com

 “A heartwarming true story that has been expertly crafted into an irresistible, emotion-charged documentary.”Screen International

“FOUR STARS! WITH ITS SHEER WARMTH AND LIKEABILITY, THIS GOOD-NATURED DOCUMENTARY WON MY HEART.” –Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

Music Suppressed Music Concert 2016-06-27 20:00:00
Description

Suzanne Snizek, flute
Aaron Schwebel, violin
Keith Hamm, viola
Yoomi Kim, piano

Join School of Music professor Suzanne Snizek for this concert featuring rarely performed examples of "suppressed music" from the WWII era. Predominantly written by composers of Jewish backgrounds, these works were suppressed by the Third Reich for ideological rather than artistic reasons, and systematically prohibited from publication, performance and broadcast. These compositions unfortunately often never found, or in many cases never regained, their place in the standard repertory even long after the WWII era concluded.

Snizek has been actively researching, teaching and performing this vast body of work for the past 10 years and this recording and concert project is the culmination of this extensive study period. Now the recipient of a UVic research and creative project grant, Suzanne is recording six musical works that illustrate the diversity and vitality of the musical styles and ideas that were being explored during that historical era.

The concert will feature Sonata’s for flute and piano by Boris Blacher and Leo Smit as well as trio by Jan van Gilse. Joining Snizek to perform these works are violist Keith Hamm (Canadian Opera Company), violinist Aaron Schwebel (National Ballet of Canada concert master), and pianist Yoomi Kim (Victoria Conservatory of Music faculty).

SING STREET

Director: John Carney; Ireland, 2016,106 min; PG

Welcome to 1985’s Dublin, where times are desperate and London is the dream destination, just a pop song away. It’s the setting for this uplifting crowd-pleaser from Irish filmmaker John Carney. As he did with Once, Carney mixes hardscrabble realism with highly charged romanticism. Young teenage Cosmo (played with verve by Ferdia Walsh-Peelo) spends the whole film chasing hair styles and not fitting in – but looking to get in with an older girl (Lucy Boynton). The soundtrack is a pure love letter to eighties radio: the Cure, A-ha, the Clash, Hall & Oates, Spandau Ballet, and, yes, Duran Duran. Cosmo forms a band, eventually landing a gig at the school dance, in a climactic scene that will cause hearts to cheer and chests to swell. –The Globe and Mail

“Will make you laugh, cry and leave you humming its songs for days.” –Empire 

“The most romantic movie you'll find anywhere these days, brimming over with music, fun and the thrill of first love.”Rolling Stone

“FEW FILMS ARE EVER AS ENJOYABLE AND ENDEARING!” –Consequence of Sound
