Naturally brilliant
18 August 2001 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

Playing Beattie Bow was probably one of the only movies I enjoyed which I had to study in primary school!

But it's a naturally brilliant movie anyway, not only dealing with a girl's attitude to growing up and surviving life, but it also has excellent screen caps of what life was like in the 19th Century Australia.

Note: I can't believe that Beattie Bow is played by "Viv" from Home And Away!!!
