Moving and dramatic film- well made by Australia
29 October 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie with two girlfriends while on holiday in Avoca Beach. This was the only movie on offer at that time so we almost had to see it. Though I am maybe (some would say) to young (though I am mature for my age) to understand the full extent of the movie, but from what I do understand it was excellently made. It was moving and a real deep piece of work. The actors- though lesser known- were well cast and the writing went where it needed to go. The ending is by no means happy or satisfactory in the sense of fairytale endings, but rather is the sad reality of the situation. I was silent for about half an hour after because I needed to think and let the movie sink in. I recommend it for people who enjoy moving pieces about real issues.
