A nice little movie
25 January 2017 | by ruthfromozSee all my reviews

Based on a real character and real occurrences, this little movie gives a more or less authentic depiction of the Cliff Young story.

Young was an unknown 61 year old country bumpkin who through sheer determination took on all the professionals and won the Sydney to Melbourne Ultra Marathon. In the process he took Australia and the world by storm and became something of an Australian legend.

Keven Harrington was good as Cliffy, but obviously way too young for the role - but it's doubtful if they could have found an actor closer to the real age who could have handled the rigors of the part. He was ably supported by such Australian/NZ stalwarts as Roy Billing and Anne Tenney in the roles of Wally his mate and trainer and his sister. The inclusion of the many years younger girlfriend (and eventually wife) was probably necessary, but not true to actual events as I recall them.

Nothing mind blowing about this little movie, but a pleasant way to while away an hour or so.
