THE CUP (Theatrical Release USA 2012)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.3|5.0 Starsìììì

The Cup—great film for horse loverstells its story well. Good casting that choses Brendan Gleeson as a horse trainer. The accents are difficult to understand, but the subtitles are good and can be used to supplement dialogue. Good watch.
