Parts of this film were very uncomfortable for me because I was suddenly aware of the enormity of what I am trying to achieve. Naturally my efforts and any hoopla around it are puny when comparing it to male elite level, but....while those scenes were happening I quailed.
The film itself was a little threadbare. I didn't feel any of the characters were defined enough and for the cyclists in the audience the actor's physique was very unconvincing. It was also a bit disconcerting to see a hobbit as his manager. Well... he did keep his shoes on.....!
We had free tickets from CyclingVictoria, the people sitting next to us got theirs from Beyond Blue ; for the session we attended at 11 am the cinema was almost empty.
Overall opinion..disappointed. Not a film I'd travel far to see.
