An Indonesian fishing boat abandons a group of Iraqi and Cambodian men on a remote part of the Western Australian coast. Told there is a bus over the dunes, the men are abandoned to a desert the size of Poland. While most are quickly rounded up, three men with little in common but their history of misfortune elude capture and begin an epic but confused journey drawn on by their hopes amplified by the empty desert. Pursued by an army reservist unit more concerned with playing ball sports and music, our three protagonists wander deeper into trouble, searching desperately among the harsh beauty of the Pilbara for evidence of a western, liberal democracy. Or the promised bus. Written by
A true delight - great story with a message and a heart
What a great little film and I mean that in the best way. Meaning it's not overplayed, over-acted, over-cut, over-the-top or any of the other "we're over it's" that fill most of the frames of blockbuster rubbish.
This is a film that tells a great story, with compelling and real people that will have you laughing along and wishing them all a happy ending.
Even better for an Aussie film, it's full of the great Aussie characters and they're not over-done or caricatures.
yes it's a touch long and if it gets the 10 minute trim I and others think it deserves, Lucky Miles will be one of the great little films of recent times - go see it!
