Quotes & Highlights
“Footy Legends” has a big heart and an inclusive sense of humour … few moviegoers will leave without a smile on their face." _—The Daily Telegraph _(Australia)
A unique film from Austrailia, this is a heartfelt story of a Vietnamese Australian who must win the biggest rugby match of his life in order to keep his family together.
Luc and his friends were once rugby champions, but those glory days have long faded as each find themselves unemployed and wasting away their days in suburban Sydney, with their rugby skills no longer even good enough to beat a team of toothless garbage men. Undeterred, Luc still has a smile for his elevenyear-old sister Anne, whom he has cared for ever since their mother passed away.
When the state threatens to take Anne away unless Luc can prove he can care for her, he turns to the one thing he has ever been good at: rugby. To prevent losing his sister, Luc must reunite his old team and win against the toughest rugby team they have ever played against. In addition, Luc must overcome the temptations that threaten to tear the team apart, and face down his own grandfather, who has never forgiven him for his failures.
Director Khoa Do’s film follows his critically acclaimed 2003 work, “The Finished People,” which was nominated for two AFI Awards and three Film Critics’ Circle Australia Awards.
