First Trailer for Aussie Drama 'Ride Like a Girl' Starring Teresa Palmer
"It's not just about speed, it's about patience." Transmission Films has debuted the first official trailer for an inspirational sports biopic from Australia titled Ride Like a Girl, which is also the feature directorial debut of actress Rachel Griffiths. The film tells the story of Michelle Payne, the first female jockey to win the Melbourne Cup - horse-racing's toughest two-mile race - back in 2015. Teresa Palmer stars as Michelle, with a wonderful cast including Sam Neill, Sullivan Stapleton, Stevie Payne (as himself), Genevieve Morris, Sophia Forrest, Henry Nixon, Aaron Glenane, and Zara Zoe. This looks great! Seems to be a bit better than your average sports biopic, with plenty of hardship and heart keeping her motivated as she fights her way into the male-dominated world of jockeys. Plus, Sam and Teresa are both wonderful to watch.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Rachel Griffiths' Ride Like a Girl, direct from YouTube:
As a little girl, Michelle Payne (Teresa Palmer) dreams of the impossible: winning the Melbourne Cup — horse-racing's toughest two-mile race. This is her story. Ride Like a Girl is directed by Australian actress-turned-filmmaker Rachel Griffiths, making her feature directorial debut with this film, after a few short films previously. The screenplay is written by Andrew Knight and Elise McCredie. Produced by Richard Keddie and Susie Montague-Delaney, co-produced by Naomi Cleaver and Felicity Stoward. This hasn't premiered at any film festivals or otherwise. Transmission will release Ride Like a Girl in Australia starting on September 26th this fall, but no official US release date has been set yet. Stay tuned. First impression?
And Sam Neil is in it. But mostly,this is about supporting women. So, yes. And this might have some inspiring moments ...
