Written with every cliché in he Australian language
24 March 2017 | by Fiona BroneSee all my reviews

Fred Schepsi and Thomas Keneally spoke a similar dialogue,and made the original titled film as an Australian masterpiece.

This 2014 TV series never reaches the writing delicacy of the original story. Just horrible dialogue writing in a cliché-driven script. If you were drinking a shot for every cliché you would fall off your recliner by ep one.

Other films have since tackled the theme with style and grace. This one lacks both.
