A film that shows it as it was
19 October 1998 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

One of the few Australian movies that shows the outback and the men who worked there as they really were, without trying to romanticise and play down the brutality of the place and time. Great performance by Jack Thompson as the ageing gun shearer.
