Storyline

City based Eddie sets off to reconnect with his blackfella roots by taking a sacred stone back to his hometown. But when wild-boy Charlie forces himself along for the ride, Eddie's spiritual journey goes off track and becomes a riotous trip through outback Australia as the boys are forced to contend with a self-obsessed Italian rock-god, a cross dressing cousin, and a demonic dog!

Warm hearted and engaging
28 August 2009 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

There is something unique about this film beyond the plot and characters. Billed as the first Indigenous Australian comedy, Stone Bros. rightly places itself at the forefront of what is undoubtedly an original format. Like many Australian films, Stone Bros isn't shy in pointing out the flaws of its characters, and taking a dig at the local culture. However, the cast of characters are not the usual crowd, and the honest engagement with the audiences potential discomfort successfully manages to overcome a great deal of presumption about Indigenous culture, particularly in a rural or "Outback" setting.

Endearing characters; humorous and ambitious. I'm particularly impressed with the success in fulfilling that ambition for, despite being a bit rough around the edges, this film lives up to its aims: to challenge dominant perceptions and present a film that all Australians can get behind and enjoy on a lighthearted level - but in consideration of serious issues.

An important film, worth seeing:potentially an Australian classic.
