One the best Aussie movies I've seen
26 May 2013 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I know, being an Australian, that I'm probably a little biased but this is a movie that is well worth viewing. To our American, and possibly even English movie buffs, you may have to click the sub titles button. I won't divulge any spoilers to those outside Australia as all Aussies will know the Cliff Young story but again, I would encourage all others to take the time and give this story some serious consideration. It is well acted, with a fine selection of great Aussie talent. There are many moments of humour, drama and emotions that go with the task that Cliff has to endure. It is suitable for all ages so don't be concerned about foul language or pointless violence because you will not see any of that. Please enjoy and, even if it's negative, I would be interested in your opinions.
