David Caeser mixes a nice blend here, set around the outback world of long haul trucking. Some really heartfelt moments are mixed with a sweet romance that holds the film together. Caesar doesn't shy away from the dark elements of the trucking industry either or the difficulties that the long haul lifestyle brings. Lots of drugs and shady characters and deals abound.
Strong performances from the cast all round and witty dialog keep this moving along nicely.
The only thing that made me sad at the end of this as I walked home was that this will be yet another well made and entertaining Aussie flick that the majority of Australians will ignore. I hope I'm wrong but I doubt it. This film and other Aussie flicks this year all deserve a better fate.
Well done David, look forward to your next film.
My uncle, a truckie who died on the infamous Putty Rd, would have loved this. I remember riding with him to Tamworth when I was a kid and the stories he'd tell.
