As he desperately finds a way to...

A Stand out in Australian cinema
12 November 2018 | by bazza_mckenzie02See all my reviews

Reaching Distance is a top notch Film that drives you headfirst into a psychologically Charged Drama with a great story underlining it.

A breakout film that Australian's don't normally try to make and will hopefully inspire many others. Very Original paving the way for a bright future in the Australian film industry.

The Star of the film is the brilliant young talent Wade Briggs who is outstanding.

So great to see Eddie Baroo as one of the main characters. He delivers laughs and a pearler of a performance my favourite performance of his so far.

The very talented David Fairhurst's crafted a great film with skill and style that has a nice story at it's heart.

He's a Great talent surely set for a big future in the Film Industry.

The Sound experts have created something special which adds to the film time and again.

This is a film that you'll get the full feel of in a cinema.

See it in the cinemas and support Australian films and keep the hardworking cast and crew working.
