Director Mark Grentell and producer Anne Robinson will attend the screening on Sun 24 Feb.


It’s time to cheer the underdog in this rambunctious, heartwarming David and Goliath comedy from Australia. The screen adaptation of Damian Callinan’s stage hit finds former football star Troy Carrington (Callinan) trying to revive the fortunes of his football club in the tiny township of Bodgy Creek. Times are hard, jobs are scarce and civic pride is all they have left. Troy decides to seek out the undiscovered talent at the local refugee support centre. His fight against ingrained prejudices and bitter opposition fuels a winning tale of rebirth, romance and redemption.
