Comments on: "Ride like a girl (movie)" (10)

  1. A compelling and empowering documentary based on the horse racing life of Michelle Payne. This movie follows her through the ups and downs of family and racing life, and the many dangers that come with horse racing. It follows her all the way from a farm in Ballarat to the Melbourne Cup. I really loved this movie. It was so inspiring and motivational. I would recommend this to anyone who loves informative and moving documentaries and strong female characters. Highly recommend! 10/10!

  2. This is a great and really inspiring movie, that promotes girl power and fights against gender inequality. This movie is based on the true story of how Michelle Payne, an Australian Jockey, became the very first women to win the Melbourne Cup in 2015, riding Prince of Penzance. Michelle, the youngest of 10 children, was raised by her father Paddy. She had always dreamt of being a winning jockey as a child, and, aged seven, told friends she would one day win the Melbourne Cup. It is the story of how Michelle overcame many obstacles to achieve her dreams, and how she turned from that ambitious seven-year-old to the winner of the 2015 Melbourne Cup. My favourite person from this story would have to be Michelle’s brother, Stephen Payne. Stephen actually plays himself in the movie, and I believe that he provides a lot of humour and comedy into the film. I truly believe that this is an excellent movie to watch for all ages, due to the important morals of aiming high to achieve your goals, the theme of gender equality, and the overall uplifting spirit of this film. I recommend this film for all ages, and I would rate it an 8/10.

    ride like a girl is such an amazing movie, about girls and empowerment and how you don’t have to be a man to do and achieve the things you love to do, such a great movie and if people tell you that you can’t do something prove them wrong and it doesn’t matter what race, gender, age or religion you are as you can do anything you wish to achieve if you truly believe and put your mind to it. I would give this movie a definite 10/10 as it proves girls are just as good as guys and to never give up.

  4. I loved ride like a girl, it was about two of my favourite things… sport and girl power. It is a true story about Michelle Paine, who is a jokey. she is one of 11 and all of her siblings are jokey’s! Michelle found it hard at first but after weeks of hard work eventually got into the Melbourne cup, like everyone told her she wouldn’t be able to do but she won like she told everyone she would. I Recommend this movie to anyone that likes true movies and woman empowerment, I think anyone that is 8+ should watch this because some of the content may be hard for a young person to understand and interpret.

    I love Ride Like A Girl!! It’s an incredible, inspiring and really enjoyable movie. It is based on the true story of Michelle Payne who was the first female Melbourne Cup winner. The movie is truly inspiring and it shows that girls can do anything. It is really emotional and very sad at some parts of the film. It also has plenty of hilarious moments. My favourite character was Stevie, who was played by himself. He was an incredible, heartwarming and hilarious character who always lightened the mood. He was never put down by his down syndrome which he joked about occasionally. Overall, the movie is really inspiring, moving and a definite must-see movie.I rate a 9.8/10!

  7. Ride Like A Girl is a great movie. I would recommend this film to young coming of age girls because the film is based on a true story and revolves around equality and how girls can make their dreams come true. It is a very inspiring movie about a girl, who dreams of not only racing in the Melbourne Cup, but winning it. However, she struggles to be noticed, girls are overlooked and irrelevant, they are seen as weak compared to the boys but Michelle is determined to prove society wrong, with the help of her family and friends she works toward her dreams as a professional jockey.

  10. I really like ride like a girl because it shows to care and love for everyone no matter who you are and what you look like. It also shows that you should never give up because it will come one day to you. It also shows girl power because she is always separated from the boys but still beats them. I think it is a great movie for any girl at age.
