Rachel Griffith’s long-awaited movie, about Michelle Payne, the first female jockey to win the Melbourne Cup, has shot to the top of the Australian box office.
“We are beyond thrilled it’s captured the hearts of Australian audiences,” says Griffiths of her editorial debut.
Adds producer Richard Keddie: “It’s been a long time since we had a true Aussie hero and a great underdog story. Michelle’s win in the Cup was extraordinary but her family story and the power of the family is the real hero here.”
