Australian classic movies at the Chiltern’s Star Theatre – ‘The Cup’ (2011) PG adapted

The Melbourne Cup on the first Tuesday in November, is called ‘The Race That Stops a Nation’, but never in the history of Australia’s 150-year-old Thoroughbred Classic has there been so dramatic a contest as the 2002 running of the richest and most prestigious two-mile handicap.

But the heart of this true story is a young Australian jockey, Damien Oliver, who loses his only brother in a tragic racing accident just days before the great race. Following his brother’s death, Damien suffers through an almost endless series of discouraging defeats only to triumph on one of sport’s greatest stages in one of the most thrilling finales in all of sport.

Starring Stephen Curry, Daniel MacPherson, Jodi Gordon, Martin Sacks, Shaun Micallef,
Bill Hunter, Colleen Hewett, and Tom Burlinson

Inspired by a stirring emotional true story
