A mysterious antique lace collar allows a troubled modern girl to travel back to 19th Century Australia.
9 October 2000 | by See all my reviews

Ruth Park's classic Australian book is here given a slightly insipid but enjoyable adaptation. Abigail (Imogen Annesley) is not quite as gutsy and stoic as in the novel, and a few accents are a little shaky, but visually the movie is very true to the book. The squalor of 19th Century Sydney's slum areas are vividly brought to life, using real-life locations that still exist today.

Watch the movie - but give the book a look too.
