Movie Info

This Australian period comedy set at the turn-of-the-century, is based on the anecdotal books of Steele Rudd (the pen name for author Arthur Hoey) that described life on a rural "selection" (a small farm) in Queensland. Like the original written tales, the film is anecdotal and chronicles events from the lives of the Rudd family. The story begins when the parents and their five grown children first arrive at their desolate selection. Their lives are as barren as the land as they struggle to work. The result of their toil is a meager harvest, which they try to sell in a depressed market. Despite their constant hard work and few rewards, the family is a lively bunch and despite their difficulties are able to stay together through thick and thin. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Dad and Dave: On Our Selection

  • Nov 14, 2017
    I remember watching this on the VHS release all those years ago. The Dvd release should be upscaled to a higher quality to showcase the cinematography that is well filmed. The story is about the aussie battler, a timeless story in our history, the majority of our population can relate to this film. The film is about family and it wears its heart proudly throughout, the funny moments come from the slow burning plot developments, the film is a lot a few sketches, title cards slot in every once in a while. I wish our film industry would make more fun and light hearted films like this, not every day we see a film about the families that help build it. There are so many actors that grew into big and talented actors, you can clearly see why. 14-11-2017.
