This film is a bit pedestrian in its storytelling but it is redeemed by the beautiful Bronwyn Mackay-Payne as Dawn Fraser. She is also quite believable as an Olympic athlete and has a strong sensual presence. While this film is not on the level of Personal Best it is quite watchable and absorbing thanks to Ms. Mackay-Payne. I had hoped to see her work as the years passed but I have not had that pleasure. Was she herself an Olympic caliber athlete ? Since she was neither petite nor blond it is probable that significant roles were not forthcoming. If anyone has information about this actress feel free to e-mail me. I am a big fan of actors and films a little off the beaten path. So many films and TV programs feature young blond actors who can not act and seem to resemble each other.
