Brilliant.
24 October 2011 | by nightingaleronSee all my reviews

I was lucky enough to get the whole 6 episodes of this movie. I agree with the first reviewer that the first episode is a little confusing. The story starts with the Lamb family and i immediately recognized the Point Walter jetty Where the boy dives into the water as i lived in Point Walter on the Swan river Perth in the year 1962 and 1963. The jetty back then was not -T -shaped but was extended later to become that. The Lambs were obviously camping at point Walter which many did as it was a great crabbing,fishing and prawning place.Attadale, as the movie suggests,being where the movie was filmed- borders the suburb of Bicton which is the home of the Point walter reserve. After the drowning of the Lamb boy who was prawning on the wrong side of the drag net,(they prawned using a drag net and in the shallows but close to a drop off)The movie moves to the Pickles family. These 2 families are like cheese and chalk. The Lambs are from Margaret River- South of Perth and a farming community that grow vegetables and fruit. The movie then quickly switches to the Pickles. They obviously live way North of Perth in the town of Geraldton which is mainly wheat and sheep country. (guessing this as they mention the Brolos islands) However, the pickles are not farmers and Mr Pickles works on the cray fishing boats as Geraldton was also renown for the fishing.So it shows Mr Pickles getting his fingers caught in the winch that was used to pull the crayfish pots on board.(truth is,-they did not have those back then and they pulled by hand lol.) Mrs Pickles is an alcoholic and plays around,- while her husband is also an alcoholic with a bad gambling habit. The most of the filming (inside the house) actually took place in the now closed and fenced off-sunset hospital which is situated in the suburb of Dalkeith on the opposite side of the river. Entertaining and very good acting.We watched part 1 and could not stop and watched every episode. Could have been far better with a bit more expense.EG~ The kids get older but the parents seem to stay the same age. Not wanting to spoil this movie as i really think it is great and a must to see. Will easily watch it again.
