Gritty drama made by people who care
I can't believe this movie was made in 22 days. Incredible!
This is a gritty drama that portrays life in the Outback in the early 1920s. Very realistic (hence).
I strongly recommend this movie if you have any interest in Australian history, beyond the rather varnished school history book version.
As an aside, I find it hard to beleive that Bryan Brown and Sam Neill are the same age. I think Sam wears it particularly well.
