A must watch! Paper Champions is a gentle film well suited for current times. The film is well paced, having great comedic moments entwined within it. Cast all deliver great performances, and the dialogue seems realistic. The cinematography is a personal favourite, with a great colour grade as well!

Had me laughing all the way through!
A very entertaining flick with plenty of 'laugh-out-loud' moments. It has an empathetic story with unique & colourful characters. The story moves along pretty quickly and is complemented by a dynamic yet unusual duo Rey (Luke Saliba) and Wade (John Tui) who both deliver a great performance. With soul-lifting, humorous moments throughout most scenes, I walked away from this film feeling refreshed which is a great response to a film. Simple, elegant yet captivating. Highly recommended.
The cinematography in this film is simplistic yet beautiful. The colour grade is soft and unique. It's the perfect time for a movie like this to be released to the public with everything that's happening in the world; a nice feel good, pick me up film. The larger characters in the film like Wade, Terry and Joe are balanced out by the more normalised characterisations of Rey and his love interest Holly. That being said Wade's comedic characteristics shine through the film. And Holly isn't just any simple love interest, and is played perfectly. Luke Saliba does a great job at bringing such an awkward, timid and meek character to the screen. It's a true joy to see Geelong on the big screen.
