Brilliant, Australians do this stuff so well, understated… total respect for the film-makers
Aussie movies share common characteristics… understate, irreverent, subtle and in this case a sublime respect for culture and roots.
A young man man torn in two directions eventually finds his own sense of self, self respect and respect for his history.
Slow paced, just like the country he comes from and every moment rich in joy, if you choose to look at it with eyes other than those that only appreciate the Marvel Universe, (which I love also).
Wonderful coming of age story
Thoroughly enjoyable movie. Presented an indigenous view of were traditional culture meets white in outback towns. All the good & bad elements of the breakdown in traditional structures are presented in a simplistic rendition of the strength of culture through the wrapping within the protective framework of Elder knowledge. The simplistic & warmhearted presentation of coming of age & recognition of where value & importance actually lies, was lovingly if somewhat unrealistically presented during the bush parts. Consequence & direness regardless of bush knowledge were very poorly presented in the traveling through the bush section of movie. Very much let the rest of the movie down. Loved the way the negative aspects of cultural breakdown were presented so ordinarily, sledgehammer approach was not used for a change, and made them so much more significant in there everyday ordinariness.
