A film about All Blacks legend Dan Carter will be released in cinemas nationwide on Thursday 29th August, ahead of the Rugby World Cup.
allblacks.com describes the film as revealing a side to global superstar Dan Carter that has never been seen before, opening the door to Carter’s private life and featuring sit-down interviews with his Black Sticks wife Honor Carter and other family members
“It’s definitely more of myself than I’ve been comfortable giving in the past. I’ve been incredibly lucky in my life with the opportunities I’ve been given, but I’ve also had some dark times along the way,” commented Dan Carter. “I hope audiences take away from the film that you can reach your goals no matter where you come from and what you come up against.”
The film also exposes the physical and mental torment of Rugby World Cup tournaments as Carter prepares for his final quest in the iconic black jersey.
Director Luke Mellows commented on the project: “A number of the people we spoke to during filming said the same thing - the public have seen a lot of Dan, but very few feel like they know the real Dan Carter. I think Dan has overcome a lot more than people realise. Seeing the sacrifices he’s made makes you further appreciate the remarkable things he has achieved over the course of his career.”
