This 10-part TV mini-series follows an Australian family affected by the Vietnam war. Nicole Kidman plays a young woman who becomes an anti-war activist, when she sees what is happening in Vietnam after the Australians got involved. Set in the 1960s through to the early 1970s, the series shows the shifting attitude of Australians towards the war and the lack of humanity towards the Vietnamese.
I would like to reinforce the previous reviewer's comments.
This is a significant piece of film-making and deserves greater recognition.
The cast represents a large proportion of Australia's best talent of the period, many of whom have moved on to more widely known roles. Barry Otto was never better. Nicholas Eadie, John Polson and Mark Lee defined the youth of 1960s Australia. Jim Holt (I think) was a superb psychopathic special ops spook.
If Nicole Kidman wasn't a star after BMX Bandits, she was following the release of George Miller's Vietnam.
