'Slow Horses' compares life to playing the horses; making bad choices fuelled by blind passion and irrationality.
“Every now and then you’re presented with an opportunity that seems too good to be true; you’re willing to bet your life on it only for your gamble not to pay off”.
It paints a picture of a man’s foolish resilience and inability to turn a blind eye to lady luck. It explores the onset of a mid-life crisis that’s arrived two decades too soon and tells the familiar tale of that stage in life where you’re forced to grow up. Most of all it focuses on the importance of last chances.
