Based on the book of the same name by Jeannie (Mrs Aeneas) Gunn OBE (1870-1961). Although entitled "A Novel", the book, published in 1908, was really a recreation of actual events. The book became an Australian classic, and was used in schools, and translated into German. See more »
I had never heard of this film and spotted it on a shelf at a rental store some years ago. I started watching it (first few minutes is need to get you to the outback) and suddenly was engulfed by it's brilliance. I watched it all the way through then called three friends and threatened them if they didn't drop what they were doing and get to my house. We all watched it. They all paid the late fees so they could take turns having friends over to watch it. You think life is rough now? Wait till you see what this woman endures and conquers with her incredible husband, the ranch hands and the aborigines.
