The story of Michelle Payne, the first female jockey to win the Melbourne Cup.
Despite its negative aspects, the third act of the film is highly inspirational and did make me a little teary-eyed.

The downside to the film is the script; the first two acts unfortunately lack character. This could be a nice feel-good Australian film, but it just comes off a little bland. - Chris dos Santos Read Chris' full article... https://www.maketheswitch.com.au/article/review-ride-like-a-girl-melbourne-cup-biopic-plagued-by-races-questionable-history
