    A moving road movie, which sees its character's honestly (Branagh in particular is great, playing Neville as a man who deeply believed he was doing the right thing even as he was ripping families apart). Also the Peter Gabriel score is outstanding.

    Kenneth Branagh is a compelling villain, and some of the cinematography is great but there simply isn't enough plot to carry this true-story drama to the finish line with full attention in tow.

    A great journey picture and certainly one of the best films on the aboriginal peoples of Australia. Kenneth Branaugh is brilliant as the adversary for the escaping gals.

    Depends on how you view it, it can a film about racism or a film about staying together and finding way home. The realistic portrayal can be disturbing to some people but are the ultimate truth of what the British people were thinking- Eugenics in a wrong way. Aboriginal people are shown to have strong willpower and stamina thanks to the director. It's a controversial film based on the true story.
