10/10 Aussie Movie
18 September 2005 | by krissy_belleSee all my reviews

What a fantastic movie! Georgie (Tasma Walton) and her daughter Natasha (Brittany Byrne) come back to the small town where Georgie grew up, to find Georgie's mother, Lola (Sigrid Thornton) dying of Cancer, and a mystery disappearance thats over 15 years old. This movie beautifully combines Australian humour with touching drama and a good old fashioned 'who done it!' This all star cast that had me guessing right up to the very end (and after!) I thought Brittany did a fantastic job at the 'non conventional' TV teenager, and brought reality to the character - not everyone has a tantrum about not knowing who their father is.

This is a definite must see if you've lost faith in the Australian Film Industry.
