This Aussie take on drama and misfortune surrounding single pregnant women in the late 1960s Australia presents compelling stories and characters.

This must have been a hoot for set dressers, wardrobe, makeup and hair: every shot looks like a period snapshot. The music track is a little forced and the vintage automobiles are all pristine, much of the wardrobe looks more like party apparel than casual clothing, nevertheless I can't take my eyes off of it.
