Brilliant Direction...
23 January 2001 | by See all my reviews

The film Parklands, starring now famous Cate Blanchett, is delightful and inspiring. The depth and honesty it contains is rare in many commercial films to date. Under Millard's direction and script, this film translates into an epic journey of one woman, and her courage to fight against all odds.

Rating: 9/10
