AUSTRALIAN PREMIERE

FAMILY, ADVENTURE / FRANCE / 2020 / 102 MIN / All ages

Travel back to the 1960s to meet Poly, the Shetland pony, who has inspired children ever since she jumped from the pages of Cécile Aubry’s much-loved novel and into their hearts. This visually splendid new feature film – set against the breathtaking landscapes of the Cévennes region in south-central France – will delight and inspire a whole new generation.

Poly’s story begins at a circus where she is mistreated, but help arrives in the form of 10-year-old Cécile (newcomer Elisa de Lambert). Enlisting the other children from the village, a rescue mission is put into place and Cécile and Poly head off for an adventure full of peril and excitement, pursued by the unscrupulous circus owner Brancalou (Patrick Timsit, I’ll Go Where You Go, AF FFF21), but helped by the mysterious Victor (François Cluzet, The Intouchables).

Writer/director Nicolas Vanier is renowned for creating charming and action-filled family friendly films about the relationship between people and nature, with past credits that include Spread Your Wings (AF FFF20), School of Life (AF FFF18) and Belle & Sebastian (AF FFF14). Poly is Vanier’s latest triumph.
