Classic Australian feel good movie - as good as The Castle
25 January 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

The story is about a 61 year old potato farmer from South East Victoria, down on this financial luck and enters an Ultra Marathon from Sydney to Melbourne to raise a little cash. With a current record of 860+kms in 7+ days, Cliffy takes on the challenge against the odds and with little support. Based on a true story, this is a classic Australian feel good movie, as good as The Castle which is often portrayed as THE Australian classic of it's time. With a great selection of Australian actors, excellent cinematography, a witty script and oozing country Australiana, I would highly recommend this film if you like this Australian genre (think The Castle).
