The truth of the subject
19 May 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

As an Australian who has lived in communities similar to the one depicted in this TV series, I can assure viewers it is *not* over-stated or exaggerated in any way - and in some communities even now, similar problems are occurring.

A young Cate Blanchett is absolutely remarkable, and Ernie Dingo performs marvelously in one of his few dramatic roles at the time. The soundtrack is also excellent.

I strongly recommend that any person with an interest in indigenous life vs white life in rural centres of Australia watch this series ... it may open eyes for some.
