Never Tell Me Never is one of the best biographical films I've ever seen!
15 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm not from Australia, and I admit that I don't know much about Janine Shepherd other than what I learned while watching the movie, but, in my opinion, Never Tell Me Never is one of the best biographical films I've ever seen. No cheesy, 60's-70's-style "this is a profound moment, people!" music; an understated, effective performance by Claudia Karvan as Janine; and, overall, a solid movie that gets to the point without getting bogged down in the details (if the writers had decided to put in every single moment of Janine's journey, they'd still be filming!). Yes, other people who were involved in Janine's story weren't totally fleshed out, but the movie was about Janine, not everybody else and, again, there's only so much attention that can be paid by an audience before they fall asleep! I enjoyed Never Tell Me Never so much, I've watched it virtually every time it's been on TV!
