Wonderful, authentic Aussie film
19 December 2016 | by Victoria RoomeSee all my reviews

This film was wonderful!

I loved the depth of the bushranger characters, I loved the cinematic moments that embraced the Australian bush in such a beautiful and fresh way (I felt like I could feel the breeze and smell the gums!) and I loved that the film is authentic in sets and costumes AND based on a true story.

Can't believe I knew of Ned Kelly but not of Hall, Gilbert and Dunn.

Great story. Great music. Great work! Highly recommend it.

A special note on the beautiful score - the music was soaring. And the credits were artistically beautiful as well. These guys nailed it.
