Great Australian story based on Damian Oliver, a jockey, who's father died during a race fall. One week before the Melbourne Cup, Australia's biggest race, his older brother falls and dies. Damian is poised to ride in The Cup on a skittish horse that a few months prior no one thought would race again. He's able to not only overcome his fear of getting back on a horse but is also able to win the race. Get ready to reach for the tissues.
based on true stoyry another horsey story
If you like horses this is your cup of tea
Solid sports movie about champion Australian jockey Damien Oliver, and the tragedy he went through in losing his brother, to then go on and triumph in the 2002 Melbourne Cup. It doesn't grip you in the way that 1983's "Phar Lap" does, but it's a quality movie that should please sports fans.
Entirely predictable, the gentle story telling was perfect for a rainy day. Steven Curry performed well in the leading role.
Would have been better off watching Two Girls, One Cup
I love a true story!
What a well told story and really well acted, Stephen Curry is brilliant
Mised this at the cinema and recently saw it on DVD. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this true story of jockey Darren Oliver's winning ride of Media Puzzle in the 2002 Melbourne Cup, just a week after the death of his brother Jason (in a riding fall) and on the day prior to his funeral. It's a little cheesy, but in the main is inspriing and touching. An ensemble Aussie cast, supported by the marvellous Brendan (Mad-eye) Gleeson really makes it! A good 90 minutes of entertainment and a nice story too.
Excellent story. Poor movie. Gave me a laugh when they used a SPCA underfed horse to allow the actor to mount.
