Wonderful coming of age story
15 September 2013 | by (SW, Western Australia) – See all my reviews

Thoroughly enjoyable movie. Presented an indigenous view of were traditional culture meets white in outback towns. All the good & bad elements of the breakdown in traditional structures are presented in a simplistic rendition of the strength of culture through the wrapping within the protective framework of Elder knowledge. The simplistic & warmhearted presentation of coming of age & recognition of where value & importance actually lies, was lovingly if somewhat unrealistically presented during the bush parts. Consequence & direness regardless of bush knowledge were very poorly presented in the traveling through the bush section of movie. Very much let the rest of the movie down. Loved the way the negative aspects of cultural breakdown were presented so ordinarily, sledgehammer approach was not used for a change, and made them so much more significant in there everyday ordinariness.
