my own comments after having watched this
17 May 2004 | by (victoria, australia) – See all my reviews

great film, very accurate of the period, Jaqueline McKenzie was sensational. Definitely Worth having a few cuppa's on hand, never a dull moment, no bad endings & not full of violence. The rest of the cast was perfect as well.

the settings were just as wonderful, & the colors fantastic. if you ever get a chance to buy it, it should be on the top list of videos to get. i would highly recommend this to everyone, of all ages. what else can i say, i don't want to spoil it for anyone. a very beautiful Australian film. this is my first review, so i am sorry if it seems choppy.
