Touch is a metaphysical thriller about a woman on the run with her young daughter in tow. Hiding out in a small hills town, events escalate as their unimaginable past catches up with them and an impossible choice must eventually be made.
Though I only had an extra part I can highly recommend this film as a superb drama. A true story set in colonial Australia in the early 1900's. A very good adaptation of Bryce Courtenay's book "Jessica" (well worth the read) to the screen. Leanna Walsman gives a powerful performance in the title role and Sam Neill as the rummy solicitor gives a fine portrayal, while you'll love to hate Lisa Harrow's character of Jessica's mother, Hester. The realism brought to this film by the excellent cast makes for some very unnerving scenes, especially in the insane asylum. Filmed on locations in and around New South Wales and Sydney.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! ! !
