Excellent film
21 June 2013 | by (Shoalhaven Heads) – See all my reviews

I saw the film at Bendigo, Victoria, in April 2013. It was part of the Bendigo Queer Film Festival. I was amazed by this film, and I have recommended the film to all my friends. The story is timeless, and it clearly reflects the struggle young kids still face in regional Australia. The directing, acting, music, photography, locations, and costumes were all just wonderful; the best to summarise it is that it felt so real ... I was just chatting with a friend yesterday about the struggle of a young kid unsure about his sexuality in the NSW South Coast, the risks at such a young age of depression or even more extreme consequences. I wish Monster Pies was shown in communities in our area as I think it would help combating these problems and educating young kids and their families. Well done to everyone that participated in making this film, specially to LEE GALEA !!
