In this drama, an Australian teen tries to move beyond his rural roots in the Outback to become a musician. However, he gets distracted from his dream by the appearance of a rebellious new student at his school, whose beauty is matched only by her daring. He tries to match her bravado, but his attempt gets him arrested, putting his goals in danger. ~ Kimber Myers, Rovi

It's a picture with the ambitions of a Billy Elliot but the execution of an August Rush.
Broken Hill, with its picture-postcard shots of the vast Outback, looks good and fills a niche for families.
The predictability is draining, hurting the lasting impact of this strange tale of unlikely musicianship. However, there's a curious spirit to the feature that makes it something to enjoy.
For all its flaws and despite the limiting premise, this music-themed drama works better than it should.
