Seph McKenna was a key executive at Roadshow Films when it distributed a truly Australian breakout. He says these films tell us a lot about what we really want to see.

On its opening weekend, Australian acting icon turned film director, Rachel Griffith’s debut feature Ride Like a Girl took the number one spot in cinemas. It played on 269 screens with an opening weekend of $1,684,858 and a cumulative total of $2,377,731 once preview and festival takings are accounted. With these numbers it could take $10 million at the box office, to be the top performing Australian film of 2019.
