Ride Like A Girl, Sri Lanka Trek to Tackle Poverty, Roseville Cinemas, Friday, 27. September 2019



Ride Like A Girl, is based on the true story of Ballarat's own Michelle Payne.
The movie stars Teresa Palmer as Payne who, as a young girl, dreamt of the impossible: winning the Melbourne Cup - horse-racing's toughest two-mile race. 
The youngest of 10 children, Michelle is raised by single father Paddy (Sam Neill). 
Together they overcome impossible odds for a shot at the dream: a ride in the 2015 Melbourne Cup, at odds of 100 to 1. The rest is history. 
Ride Like A Girl, directed by Oscar-nominated Australian actor Rachel Griffiths.
This film is being shown to raise funds for Oxfam's Sunrise Project.  
$10 from every ticket will go to supporting recipients of this initiative, mostly women, to break the poverty cycle through teaching business skills.
