One heck of an eye-opener!
18 October 2013 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

I don't believe I fully understood the appalling conditions confronting asbestos workers until I viewed this film. The scenes in the factory . . . the workers covered from top to toe in asbestos dust . . . laughing it off in typical Aussie style "she'll be right, mate!", made my blood run cold. And the poor aboriginals working the mines - doesn't bear thinking of. The poor innocents! Shame James Hardie! No wonder it hasn't been repeated on Australian television like so many other series.

Similar to Erin Brockovich, this is a story of courage and determination- depicting how a handful of people CAN expose and win against a corrupt giant. A good, solid script, good direction and good performances all round, particularly by Anthony Hayes who won Best Actor for his role as Bernie Banton.
