Today I went and saw "Bran Nue Day," I have seen the trailer a few times before its release and I've got to say it looked really good and I could tell it was going to be a very good movie, My friends had a few doubts due to the fact Jess Mauboy and Missy Higgns have never acted before. But now actually seeing the movie i found that not a problem at all, I think the person who played Willie was a brilliant actor (Not sure of the actors name) and I think Erine Dingo was the highlight of the cast playing Uncle Tadpole. Myself and the rest of the cinema found ourselves laughing a lot and I couldn't help keeping a big stupid grin on my face, The music was just fantastic and if i had know the lyrics i would've sung along, but instead i just tapped my foot, It was the best movie i have seen in a long time, A feel good, Aussie, Musical, Comedy, Adventure movie. I recommend it to anyone, any age, from anywhere, The only down side is that Jess Mauboy was a tiny bit cheesy and was a bit of a let down compared to everyone else but did a very good job for her first time acting. Props to Missy Higgns for making me love the film even more, Her sining and acting, just superb.
