Powerful movie.....but why is it called Australia Day?
26 January 2018 | by See all my reviews

I was pretty excited when i herd there was a movie coming out called "Australia Day". I thought it would be a great movie to celebrate one of our great calendar days. However it was not at all an uplifting movie at all, instead a powerful movie set with three stories of three different nationalities dealing with some brutal cultural differences. I did like it and it was great seeing Bryan Brown back on the screen, but it could of done with a different name. Score: 5/10
