The escapades of Ginger Meggs, local larrikin. He's trying to win the heart of Minnie Peters, but the pressures of school, his rival Eddie Coogan and bully Tiger Kelly make life tough for him. Besides, there's fishing to be done.
As a huge 'Mad Max' fan I wanted to see 'Resistance' for some time and finally got a copy shipped over from the US. It was worth the wait. This is a very good movie, dealing with some big political issues, abuse of power chief among them, with maturity and wit. It is also beautifully filmed and the vastness of the outback landscape really comes across.
It feels almost like a prequel to 'Max' in that there is a stage set here for the collapse of 'civilization' and a return to a more feudalistic society.
