Russell Crowe's first starring role
2 May 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This good Australian film is a combination of elements from PICNIC & REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE . Russell Crowe in his first starring role is a stand out & you are able to see the beginning seeds of the great actor he is today. Robert Mannone (whatever happened to him) also is a standout.

\ we have seen this story many times before. I do recommend it for all of Russell's fans. It also has a great music score, a good *** rating from me

as always

Jay Harris
