User Review

Great movie ..

Rating: 10/10

Occasionally, a movie comes along which on face value doesn't really stand out .. this was certainly one of those. That being said, I'm really glad I took the time to watch this film.

Great acting, and a genuinely unique plot made this film most enjoyable .. I firmly believe this is a fine example of Australian film making at it's best. Whilst this is certainly no big budget blockbuster, and I didn't recognise any of the actors, I can guarantee Teresa Palmer is destined for great things and she was well supported. (not that she needs a great deal of support .. you'll see) Great film, great acting, great story and a tremendous ending. I thoroughly recommend this film.
