A must see look at Australian small town life...
10 March 2009 | by philip-evansSee all my reviews

I first saw this film while I was staying for a time in Australia and fell in love with it. I found it to be highly entertaining and fascinating. If you love the people, the lifestyle, and the slower pace of Australian small towns (as I do), then you should love this movie.

The characterizations are perfect and the acting is charming! This film is a masterpiece at capturing a slice of life! While it is not a "high budget" mega film, it does something that most films can't do. It captures the charm and appeal of life in small towns, and presents it in such a way that we can relate to the situation and story, and actually feel like we are there watching the events unfold.

If I could find a copy of this film for myself, I would gladly buy it and add it to my personal collection!
