Trivia

This western film, which in part shot in South Australia, features a cast of mainly indigenous Aboriginal Australians. The earlier Australian western movie, Kangaroo (1952), which also shot in part in South Australia, also featured indigenous Aboriginal Australians in some sequences. So did the later Australian "western" pictures Red Hill (2010), The Proposition (2005), and Quigley Down Under (1990). See more »

great story, great plot, great cinematography
20 December 2018 | by hsb_455See all my reviews

This movie is very well made, specially very well cutted, very clever use of flashback and flashforwards takes you wisely through the story that never lets you guess the end and ger bored, got a bit of dark history of Australia as well, last but not least beautiful cinematography and unique locations makes this movie a must see, strongly suggested
