I saw this Movie at the Atlanta Film Festival
14 April 2010 | by sfinlay19See all my reviews

I really loved this unique, beautifully shot movie when I saw it at the Atlanta Film Festival last year and am so pleased to see that it is now in general release. The storyline - with its focus on a delicate family relationship is both inspiring and profound with sincere acting, I was particularly impressed with Jared Daperis, he surely has a fine career ahead of him. The cinematography was wonderful giving a different perspective of Australian scenery, also loved the amazing Lisa Gerrard soundtrack. Being an Australian "film buff" living in the US it was so enjoyable to feel "a touch from home" lets hope we see more movies of this caliber coming out of Australia.
