After making several commercial but impersonal actioners, Philip Noyce goes back to his Australian roots with this message film, which is powerful if also simplistic.

One of the most heart breaking dramas all year...

[Director Phillip] Noyce shows their awful, eventually uplifting journey without flinching, and the arid Australian wilderness is a co-star of the film.
September 17, 2007
Such an amazing true story leaves many opportunities for overblown melodrama, but Noyce's naturalistic restraint is what makes the film resonate so strongly.

Child performances are allways a deal breaker, but Noyce coaxes great range and rage from his child stars. As they trek across the vast land, the camera never gets in the way of focussing its energies on the protagnonists.

Phillip Noyce makes us cry not at the way human determination triumphs, but how its mere existence can keep us going through seemingly insurmountable odds.

Entering that austere pantheon of Australian outback classics like Walkabout and Picnic at Hanging Rock, Noyce's film is a profound wonder.

May 7, 2003
Perhaps the major reason for its emotional wallop is how Noyce gets a remarkable performance out of his three little road warriors, untrained actors all, whose eyes alone carry enough sadness and determination to break a million hearts.
