Toni Collette is returning to Park City this year with Dream Horse, an inspiring underdog film based on a true story, as Entertainment Weekly reports. The Oscar-nominated actress, who won a Critics’ Choice Award earlier this year for her turn in Netflix’s Unbelievable, stars as Jan Vokes, a bartender struggling to find meaning in her life, in the anticipated Sundance premiere. One night, a chance encounter with an arrogant customer, Howard Davies (Damian Lewis), a former racehorse syndicate leader, inspires her to take on a new challenge. Despite her parents’ skepticism, Jan recruits neighbors and barflies alike into a crazy scheme to contribute to a community fund and breed a racehorse. EW can debut an exclusive clip from the film in which Collette’s Jan and a team around her watch the Dream Horse in action. “It’s got spirit,” Jan is told. “Character.” “Making Dream Horse was a truly wonderful experience,” Collette tells EW. “It has the biggest heart of any film I have ever been a part of. I can’t wait to see it with an audience at Sundance.” Directed by Euros Lyn (Kiri), Dream Horse takes the subject of the 2015 Sundance Film Festival feature Dark Horse. The film marks the Park City return of Sundance regular Collette; some of her biggest past hits at the festival include Oscar winner Little Miss Sunshine and A24 sensation Hereditary.

Yesterday, Toni Collette attended the 77th Annual Golden Globe Awards as a nominee for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series, Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television for “Unbelievable”. Unfortunately, neither Toni nor her “Unbelievable” co-stars won this evening. “Knives Out” was nominated as Best Picture, Comedy or Muscial, but lost to “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood”. On the bright side, this has been Toni’s first Golden Globe appearance in 10 years! Exactly a decade ago she won the Golden Globe for “United States of Tara”. Pictures from the arrivals, show and Netflix after-party have been added to the photo gallery.
