Riveting drama, and not "one sided"
19 May 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I only write a comment because I was so annoyed at the allegation that this was one sided on the trade union side and typical of so called ABC bias. If I have a criticism of it, it's because it's a bit "soft left" and hedges its bets each way. The bit it glosses over is about the emasculation of the union movement (the "class war" in Australia has been entirely waged by the present government, not by unions) - the laws even then were blatantly pro-employer and anti-union, and have just got worse with time. In any case I was hooked on the recreation, so just judged purely as drama it's riveting (I especially liked Morrell's portrayal of Corrigan). Even if you remember the events and don't normally watch political films you should still see it - if you don't remember or don't know much about it, even more so.
