This was quite different than what
I was expecting! Nude horseback riding sequence aside, this
was a very sad story. It is really a coming-of-age story
set in Australia and the accents are quite hard to understand
sometimes. But although Russell has gotten better-looking
with age, he is still quite good in this film. Again, expect
to strain to understand what is said sometimes.
But overall, a very worthwhile experience and a tear-jerker
of an ending!
Rated: three crowes
