Who doesn’t like an Aussie battler movie? Go! looks to have all the key ingredients.
Actually, it’s looking somewhat like a cross between Paper Planes and The Karate Kid, but with lairy go-faster stripes.
It’s the story of young Jack (newcomer William Lodder) and his single mum (Frances O’Connor), who move to a small town in WA. Jack soon gets involved in the competitive world of go-kart racing. He has talent – but he’s also rather reckless (don’t be so!). Anyway, can a bunch of locals help him to overcome all odds and win the National Go-Kart Championship?
Richard Roxburgh and Dan Wyllie also star.
Go! is set to race (sorry, not sorry) into Aussie cinemas from January 16, 2020.
