Great Australian film full of heart and aussie spirit
1 October 2019 | by coasterdude44See all my reviews

Another great Australian film, Sam Neil was great in it as always, him along with Teresa Parker and Henry Nixon. They all did great in this incredibly uplifting and well acted out and directed movie based on a true story of the first female champion of the Melbourne Cup. Best aussie film of the year, go see it
