A Top Aussie Thriller
30 December 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Wow! This is a thriller in every sense of the word.

With its realism coming from its being based on actual events and some wonderful performances from top young Australian actors, it conveys a very important message about one of the most dreadful crimes afflicting modern societies. All of this while enthralling the audience with a gripping yarn. A current member of Australia's House of Representatives congratulated the Writer/Director and told her staff that this film should be compulsory viewing for all of them. I was fortunate to be at a viewing for representatives from prospective distributors and heard many favourable comments including, "This is the best Aussie film I've seen." Actors include Emma Lung and Saskia Burmeister who recently received awards at the 2006 AFI Awards Ceremony.

Highly recommended!
