Embarrassingly amateurish failure
12 November 1998 | by (Pasadena, California) – See all my reviews

According to the pre-release publicity in Australia, this movie was made by a feminist collective who had no script to follow, preferring to make up the dialog as they went along. It made me ashamed to be a feminist. The acting and dialog were painfully awkward. So the plot is about a bunch of young female convicts dumped in the penal colony in Sydney in the 1780s. They live in squalor and are periodically raped by evil guards. They break out and run away to "the bush" to live an idyllic existence with the aborigines. It gets very anachronistic during this part of the movie.
