Fantastic film - brilliantly recapping the tragedy
Day Of The Roses was the story of the Granville train accident, a tragedy where 83 people lost their lives. In this film, set out in the form of the inquest a while after the accident occurred, was wonderfully made - recreating the day in a very moving and powerful way. The award-winning screenplay is a standout, and the acting is quite superb. Even if you have no prior knowledge of Australia's worst train disaster, this film will still be thoroughly enjoyable.
