Interesting Historical Drama
8 November 1999 | by (Adelaide, Australia) – See all my reviews

An ambitious film about the fortunes of a progressive psychiatrist at three points in time across three decades: the 1920s, 30s and 40s. The strong script and structure make up for the variable acting. If you've watched Australian television in the last 25 years, you will recognise every member of the cast!

An interesting film, and a good example of how historical drama can be very engaging.
