Amy is one of the first Australian movies in a long time to hit a true cord! For those that have hit a hard time and know what it is like to live on the outskirts after having been given a glimpse of the high life, this movie will hit home.
Performances by Rachel Griffiths, Alana De Roma & even Nick Barker are outstanding.
The soundtrack complimnents the film from every angle Nick Barker has outdone himself.
This is a movie that that moves and is capable of making us all feel.
On a side note even those of us that find Ben Mendelson annoying can live with his performance in this film!
