SUCH IS LIFE: THE TROUBLED TIMES OF BEN COUSINS

Completed

The documentary outlines the sensational and controversial career of AFL superstar player Ben Cousins who from the earliest days seemed bound for glory. A prodigy of sorts – considered a star after his first game – he soon redefined how the game would be played. He was appointed captain of the mightily powerful West Coast Eagles at the uncommonly young age of 21, eventually becoming a Brownlow Medalist and a Premiership player. From the outset he was a natural leader blessed with boyish movie star good looks and charisma. Well groomed and articulate, he quickly became the AFL’s most well-known and most loved players.
