The Left side of Australian politics.
7 January 2002 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

The first real coal-miners strike in 1930's Australia told through the struggles of Agnes and Wattie Doig, two lovable rogue characters. Lowenstein's approach is simple and effective with a documentary feel about it. A leftist film worth marching for.
