This is an extremely beautifully shot, acted and directed Film by Julie Kwan.
It has all the perfect elements of a great drama and because of the child's point of view almost magic realism. Anyone who enjoys Stephen Spielberg's drama such as Colour Purple, or Marleen Goriss's Antonia, even Stephen Elliot's Pricilla Queen of the Desert from Australia will like this story, because it about family and all the complicated feelings of love and hatred that develop, being different and trying to find your place in the world, and forgiveness.
And it has great creative sets and visually beautiful.
