Predictable and dull
24 March 2018 | by ricabailey-18014See all my reviews

Theres one reason to see this film, and only one reason...to see the landscapes. . The film itself is uninspiring, tedious, predictable, cliche and overwhelmingly dull. If you were unaware of what happened in Australia's history then maybe you will find this interesting. But if you are an educated person then its doubtful. The only redeeming feature is the scenery (and some of the actors). But as a story its rubbish.
