A truly phenomenal film which has restored my faith in the Australian Film Industry. However, it was too good to be a telemovie - I wonder why they did not give it a go at the cinemas.
It is going to clean up at the AFIs - I hope it does.
Everyone's acting was fantastic, the plot was incredible and everything about it made me question how Australia could possibly have made it. I mean we are notorious for creating crap films and then telemovies like 'Jessica' and 'Mary Brant' come along and you just go "aaaaah, thank god!" A well deserved 9/10, I hope channel 10 get the ratings and accolades they deserve for this.
