Event Description

Movie Night in the Library!

This film is based on the true story of Michelle Payne, the first female jockey to win the Melbourne Cup in 2015. Starring Teresa Palmer as Michelle Payne, Sam Neill as Paddy Payne and brother Stevie playing as himself.

The film is book-ended with documentary footage, showing Michelle Payne as a small girl saying she wants to win the Melbourne Cup and at the end, as a young woman, winning the 'race that stops a nation'. In her memorable victory speech, which was televised live across Australia, she told all the people along the way who had said she could not do it, to “get stuffed”. Australian actor Rachel Griffiths watched the speech at a Cup Day barbecue and was inspired to make her debut directing a feature film.

Tea/Coffee provided.
