1980 |DCP| AUS | D: Bruce Beresford 
 
Adapted from David Williamson’s popular stage play, The Club centres on a flailing Victorian Football League (VFL) team coached by Laurie Holden (Jack Thompson) that hasn’t won a premiership for almost two decades. Club president Ted Parker (Graham Kennedy) secures star recruit Geoff Hayward (John Howard) at great expense, but things start to unravel when Geoff fails to meet expectations and the club loses a string of games. 
 
Directed by Bruce Beresford, The Club winningly satirises sporting tribalism and Australian masculinity.
