Save Your Legs!

This one's just for cricket lovers. The rest of you can safely move along.

It used to be that all we had in the cricket movie department was Lagaan (2001). If you haven't seen that, hurry along to your nearest Indian shop. They either have it, or they can get it. (If you're interested in movie posters, you might find it instructive to compare the two on this post.)

But now we have another. Save Your Legs! Written by Brendan Cowell and directed by Boyd Hicklin, the film deals with an unlikely tour of India by an Australian cricket team from the suburbs of Melbourne.
Save Your Legs! is an inspirational journey from the heart of Australia to the soul of India. It's the story of one man who refuses to lose his park cricket team to the realities of growing up. An uplifting adventure filled with comedy, cricket and Bollywood music, Save Your Legs! is an odyssey from the suburbs to the sub-continent in pursuit of a lifelong dream.
The film stars David Lyons, Brenton Thwaites and Brendan Cowell, and is being distributed by Madman Entertainment.

The film will be released in Australian cinemas on 24 January 2013.

Excellent. Why is Australia not awash with cricket movies? This one looks good.
