Broke

A washed-up former rugby star is given a chance at redemption when he is offered shelter by a fan who remembers his glory days.

Match-fixing is apparently a real problem in Australian rugby, so this is addressing topical issues, some of them head-on.

I liked the performances, particularly the daughter (Claire van der Boom), and the general direction the story took (apart from the fact that it should have ended 5 minutes before it did).

But there were also some events which were just a little too convenient, which softened the narrative and were a little implausible. Nevertheless, I didn’t mind that I watched it.
