World Premier - Sydney Film Festival Closing Night - 14/06/15
The movie did the book justice. It was sensational. You could hear 2,000 people crying in the audience!! It truly felt like the 2 boys spirits were there with us all in the Theatre that Night. There family & friends were in attendance. Amazing cast: Anthony LaPaglia, Geoffrey Rush, Guy Pearce, Marcus Graham, etc. Such an important story to tell from Australia's History. The lead actor (Ryan Corr) stole the show for me as Timothy and overshadows John but I think that is what happened in real life as he was such a force of nature, plus I guess it is his story from his book. Go See It #holdingtheman
