In a beleaguered former coal mining town, one barmaid rallies a group of friends to pool £10 per week each to breed, raise, and train a racehorse: Dream Alliance.

To top it off, we are treated to two astonishing performances from a pair of young screen misfits whose innocence and evolving worldliness collide in spectacular fashion. Best. Vampire Movie.

This hit of the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, winning both the Audience Award and Grand Jury Prize, is a charming, comic, yet moving film. Greg, an awkward high school senior, drifts outside the mainstream along with his dour buddy, Earl. Everything changes when Greg is forced by his mother to connect with a childhood friend, Rachel, whose health is failing. Along the course of Rachel’s illness, heartfelt lessons are learned but laughter is never far away.
