Mateship at its best
1 January 2010 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Avoided watching this movie for some time on the basis it will just be another poorly acted Australian soap. Came away thinking this is one of the best movies I have seen.

It is hard to believe that this great movie was made without external financial support and instead relied on the assistance of 300 volunteers and community organizations including vintage car clubs.

All of the actors provided believable presentations of their characters. Just came across as ordinary people living in the times of 1939.

This movie not only confronts the issues that so many Australians faced during that period (1939) of the great depression but the settings in the towns, on the sheep stations and along the dusty roads give a real picture of what Australia was like at the time.

Simple but poignant themes of mateship, young men growing up, following dreams and the truth of how significant people come in to and pass through lives often leaving the seed for further development.

A story told that people of all ages can relate to.
