Nice Movie
6 November 2001 | by (New York, USA) – See all my reviews

I thought that this was an all-in-all nice movie about a young Aborigine (pardon my spelling) girl who aspires to be more than what Australian society has already declared she will be. It's not an easy road, though. It's a thought provoking view at racism respect. This story could have easily taken place in the Civil Rights era USA or Apartheid South Africa or anywhere that major racial lines have existed. The acting is rather impressive, and I'm disappointed that I haven't seen the title character in more films.
