Audience Reviews for Beneath Clouds
Classic Australian film about two kids from different, but somewhat similar backgrounds who meet and wind up taking a journey together. The texture of the Australian outback as well as the indigenous people here is extremely unique, as is the look and atmosphere of the picture. It feels completely authentic. It is especially relevant to North America and our own racial issues. This is worth getting once it comes out.
