Variety
A small, carefully composed film that rejoices in the parochial lingo and mores of its richly textured characters.
60
The New York Times
This darkly humorous, sometimes even raunchy film mostly eludes a typical cutesy, feel-good formula.
60
A terrific showcase for a troupe of fine actors who rarely find work outside the Australian film industry.
58
At times it gets lost in the backwaters, but the eccentric characters and offbeat humor make it an entertaining detour.
50
New York Daily News
The realistic scenes of oyster farming and the beauty of the Hawkesbury River lend this movie a degree of fascination that its taciturn, beer-swilling characters can't provide.
50
New York Post
There are the makings of a funny movie here, but novice director-writer Anna Reeves isn't up to the job. While her cast is talented, Reeves doesn't concentrate long enough on any plotline or character to build viewer interest.
50
A quirky dramedy.
40
The Hollywood Reporter
Fails to overcome its hokey script and cliched characterizations.
