One of three cars carrying lady bowls players is overdue. Unsure about which car, who the occupants might have been, or what might have happened to them, the locals embark on a chaotic course of action to try to solve the mystery. Written by
I loved this movie because I grew up in a country town not far from Nhill.
The story starts out with 4 friends who have a car accident on the way to lawn bowls. The town responds with the usual, "she'll be right, mate" attitude that I remember with fond affection.
The acting is brilliant as it captures the various characters that we all remember.
"The road to Nhill" is a beautifully shot and acted piece of Australian cinema. But it is not everyone's cup of tea. My friend who grew up in Nhill said it reminded him of all the reasons he moved to the city.
Life in an Australian town starts slow and by afternoon tea time comes to a complete stop. Loved it!
