Why watch this film?

Based on the story of Michelle Payne, the only jockey to win the Melbourne Cup, 'Ride Like a Girl' does justice to the emotion you expect when it comes to a story about achieving dreams. The true story itself already brings some tragic events - such as Payne's fall at the beginning of her career that caused multiple fractures that delayed her progress in the sport - but her father's (played by Sam Neill) sympathy gives the perfect touch to turn this story into a sensitive and tender family entertainment.
