Take a look to this teaser poster of Ride Like a Girl, the upcoming biography drama movie directed by Rachel Griffiths based on a script by Andrew Knight and Elise McCredie and starring Teresa Palmer and Sam Neill:
A film by Rachel Griffiths.
“Michelle Payne (Teresa Palmer) was always warned she could never be a world class jockey. She was not tough enough. She was not a man.
But as the youngest daughter of a mad-cap family of jockeys, Michelle fights for every opportunity to ride hard and race fast. It’s Michelle’s father Paddy (Sam Neil) and her family who champion her ambition, despite early failures, broken bones, and a tragic family death on the racecourse.
Maverick Trainer Darren Weir also sees Michelle’s unmistakable talent, intelligence, true grit and most of all, indomitable spirit; and it’s under his watchful eye that
Michelle gets a shot at the ‘impossible’ – riding Prince of Penzance in the 2015 Melbourne Cup.
Like National Velvet, Ride Like a Girl is an uplifting true story of heroic endeavor, family, friendship, and defiance in the face of all odds.”
Teresa Palmer will make for a damn sexy jockey!
The film has yet to get an official release date.
