But their presence becomes more menacing when one of them reveals a secret: he's found gold.

Screenwriter Andy Cox proves here that you can make an effective film from a very simple but powerful theme. The script is superbly executed with strong dialogue and many plot twists and turns that keep the audience interested. The direction makes the audience feel like they are actually in the film through the use of closeups and hand held shots and the cinematography certainly takes advantage of the Australian outback. The performances from the cast were strong and I was particularly impressed by newcomer Toby Wallace. I also really liked the ending of this movie because it was different from other movies, ie it leaves you guessing what might happen from then on.
