NEW YORK KNIGHTS STAR ADAM NABLE WELCOMES BROTHER MATT AND HIS HIT RUGBY LEAGUE MOVIE "THE FINAL WINTER" FOR ITS US PREMIERE IN MANAHATTAN ON OCTOBER 10
Final Winter – Bargain For Your Future
It’s the early 1980s and the sport of rugby league is in upheaval.For so long the unfettered domain of the fearless, dwindling crowds and corporate pressures are bearing down on the game’s traditions.As the winds of change sweep across the rugby league landscape, Grub Henderson [Matt Nable] defiantly stands among all others as the embodiment of those before him.
Foreign codes of business are tearing at the fabric of the loyalty that exists between Grub and his club and family.He collides head-on with an administration eager to bury him, and battles against his brother and coach’s betrayal.At home, his wife is troubled by the transformation of the man she married, and his children are left wanting for their father.In a bid to cling to his self-worth, Grub bitterly swallows his pride and bargains for his future.As the game that provides him an identity crumbles, he finds acceptance in the man he could be.It’s a bygone era and this semi-professional League is glamour less, a different game to what it is today.
It’s the Jets Vs the Dragons with a lot of heart.This great Australian film stars, Matt Nable, Matty Johns, John Jarratt, Raelee Hill, Nathaniel Dean, Conrad Coleby, Kate Mulvany & Michelle Langstone.The film also features several cameos by league greats, Tommy Raudonikis, Noel Kelly, Phil Sigsworth, Max Krilich, Terry Randall, and Ivan Cleary. The Final winter is the first local acquisition for Paramount Pictures Australia. The Final Winter releases across Australia on Sept 6, 2007.
