Mabo tells the story of one of Australia's national heroes - Eddie Koiki Mabo, the Torres Strait Islander who left school at age 15, yet spearheaded the High Court challenge that overthrew the fiction of terra nullius.
I've always been interested in this story & I have books about it. I also have "A Cry In The Dark" which is an excellent film but if you want real detail then watch this mini series. It is very well made & meticulous in detail, you also know who every real life person involved is as they flash their names up as they appear on the screen. It is made in the fashion of a documentary.
The actors & acting is excellent too & they do resemble Lindy & Michael. I was very impressed with all of it. I did not find it boring as some other comments have suggested. I like a lot of detail & it is all relevant to the story.
I really recommend this to anyone who is interested in Azaria's story.
