Boxing tents toured Australia’s small towns from the early 1900s until the 1970s, and were venues where professional fighters faced off against local challengers. The troupes criss-crossed the outback, boasted a carnival-like atmosphere and were places where Indigenous fighters could become heroes.

Penned by writers John Brumpton and Stephen Cleary, the story involves a washed-up Irish boxer named Kid Snow who is finally given a chance to redeem himself when he is offered a rematch against the man he fought a decade prior, on a night that changed his life forever. When Kid Snow meets single mother Sunny, he is forced to contemplate a future beyond boxing.

The cast is headed by U.K. actors Billy Howle and Tom Bateman, and Australian actor Phoebe Tonkin (“Tomorrow, When the War Began” and TV series “H2O: Just Add Water,” “Bloom,” “Westworld”). Howle’s feature credits include “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker,” “Outlaw King” and “On Chesil Beach.” Bateman’s include “Thirteen Lives,” “Death on the Nile” and “Murder on the Orient Express,” as well as recent Netflix series “Behind Her Eyes.”

As CHANEL unveils a new era in the form of its sustainably minded beauty collection, N°1 de CHANEL, brand ambassador Phoebe Tonkin is ready to tackle her next phase, too.

Like many young Australian actors, Phoebe Tonkin moved to Los Angeles at age 20 to try her luck. It didn’t quite turn out how she expected. “Everyone who gets into acting has these big aspirations of the different roles they’re going to play and the experiences they’re going to have. I definitely didn’t move to LA thinking I was going to end up in Atlanta for seven years playing the same character for 10 and a half months of every year. It was amazing and I was grateful, but it’s a funny thing to sign a contract when you’re 21 that more or less eats up your entire twenties.”

“Sometimes I’ll read stuff in America and I’ll know it’s good, but it’s just not my language, it’s not how I grew up. Then I’ll read an Australian book or script and it’s in my bones. I can smell where it took place, I can taste the foods being described.”

Now 32, Tonkin has spent her time since her The Vampire Diaries/The Originals era ended being a little more selective about her projects, which last year included roles in the Damien Chazelle-directed Babylon, starring Brad Pitt and Margot Robbie, and Transfusion with Sam Worthington, which was filmed in Australia. “I love working in Australia. I think there is a specific storytelling that happens. Sometimes I’ll read stuff in America and I’ll know it’s good, but it’s just not my language, it’s not how I grew up. Then I’ll read an Australian book or script and it’s in my bones. I can smell where it took place, I can taste the foods being described. And I actually bought a place in Australia last year because I love working here. I definitely want to keep coming back and making stuff.”
