A Journey of Discoveries
25 April 2010 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

In the 20's, Ruby Rose (Melita Jurisic) lives alone with her husband Henry (Chris Haywood) and their stepson Gem (Rod Zuanic) in the cold mountains of in Tasmania, Australia. While Henry hunts with Gem, Ruby stays at home missing her mother and fearing the darkness. One day, Ruby decides to travel alone to the city where her father lives in a journey of discoveries and redemption.

"The Tale of Ruby Rose" is a weird movie with the journey of the lead character to the valley where she was born and discoveries. I saw this movie on an old VHS released by Vic Home Video distributor, but this film deserved a DVD to highlight the locations in Tasmania. My vote is five.

Title (Brazil): "Consciência Selvagem" ("Wild Conscience")
