Thirst contains truly beautiful scenery and a captivating story.

I thoroughly enjoyed the movie, it was such an original storyline that captured many emotions and a range of themes.

The backdrop of the movie would have been challenging to film in, but the result is just brilliant. So glad to find an Australian movie of this quality.

I was left thinking about the movie for some days afterward, it's the kind of story that makes you think beyond watching it.

I'd definitely recommend watching the movie, like I said, it really is great to see an Australian film of this caliber.
