I didn’t go into this thinking it would be that great, but wow it shocked me and based on such an amazing true story.
Good Family Movie
This is the true story of Australian Michelle Payne, the first woman to win the Melbourne Cup in 150 years.
Some horse stories are about the horse, and some about the Jockey. Here is mostly about the jockey until Michelle rides Prince in the big race. Then it’s about both of them.
When Michelle was 15 years old she wanted to ride in legitimate horse races. Her father Paddy (Sam Neill), is a horse trainer and says she is not ready so Michelle leaves the house and goes on to ride. She does fairly well until she falls and it is determined she will never ride again. But Champions always know what they need to do and she recovers and does ride again.
Michelle does get suspensions for what was called “reckless driving” but she claims she was right and did not cause her fellow drivers to be harmed. The suspension holds and she waits it out.
We see Paddy drive an ambulance, but we never see the ambulance be used to go to any injury.
The story doesn’t dwell too long on Michelle’s injury and recovery and before you know it she’s back riding in races.
I was most impressed at how the young Teresa Palmer turned into an adult Teresa Palmer as Michelle, of course. It’s like they waited years and years to see her grow into an adult. (Bob, Summer North played the young Michelle) You sure?
You will cheer and reach for that Kleenex box from time to time. And you will yell out “On, No!” when Michelle answers the phone to get an update on Paddy in the hospital. I know I did.
Notable: Sullivan Stapleton as Horse owner Darren Weir who gives Michelle a chance to ride in the Melbourne Cup. He took Michelle’s catharsis to heart when she berated all the horse owners when they were having lunch. Stevie Payne as Stevie Payne also known as Buddy; Young Stevie played by Gryffin Morrison.
Good family movie, but they could have used a better title.
Stay tuned to see what happened to Michelle after the race. (9/10)
