5.0 out of 5 stars
Powerful proper drama, 14 Mar. 2014
This movie is slow-moving, with no car-chases, so won't appeal to all. However if you give it your full attention it will repay you. The Acting is all top-notch (both the big names and possibly even more so the supporting cast). Beautiful Australian backdrops - really recreates the atmosphere of 1970s Australia. The story is an accurate representation of a Patrick White novel - which in itself is an achievement. No heroes and lots of villains, but nobody being entirely one thing.
A good old cerebral journey: Well worth the effort.
