"Dream Horse" isn't the most memorable flick but it's an alright crowd pleasing movie to rent at home for the family.

The film milks the death of this victim only to make a rather generic piece of horror entertainment.
Themes of job loss related to industry and rising substance abuse is something I can appreciate having grown up in a small, Midwestern town. Sadly, “Elegy” fumbles in providing anything meaningful to say in the matters and instead delivers a glossy feel good film that’s not really all too good.
Where the movie hits its stride the most, though, is in its group of characters. All of them have their own backgrounds and their own unique relationships with the late Harlan making the unraveling story all the more interesting. It also helps to have a cast loaded with people who've won or been nominated for Emmys, Golden Globes and Oscars. Chris Evans as Harlan's grandson and Shannon are two of the major standouts.
