Great fun, great gal!

This is one of those period dramas (like Lorna Doone) that you can watch with your man... enough violence and action to keep him interested, while also satisfying your romantic period drama hungerings...
It really is an incredible journey - must go and find out exactly how much is true and how much is 'embellished'. I was worried about the rating that said 'contains scenes of sexual violence', but this was more implied than explicit. A damning indictment on Australia's convict past, and the Poms who sent them here.
