Beautiful love story
30 August 2001 | by (St. Petersburg, FL) – See all my reviews

I first saw this movie on HBO. It thought it was a great story and followed the book very well. It is one movie that I can watch over & over, in fact it was just on Cinemax this week. I wish it would get a release on DVD. I found the story beautiful and of course the scenery was even great. I would highly recommend this movie to anyone that enjoys seeing something done from Australia.
