Documentary filmmaker Rachel Perkins directed this Australian drama, scripted by Louis Nowra from his own play about three sisters who reunite at the family home during the 24 hours following their mother's funeral -- the youngest sister, man-hungry Nona (Deborah Mailman), and lonely, bitter Mae (Trisha Morton-Thomas), who resents the success of the oldest sister, Cressy (Rachael Maza). When the three learn the family home will be reclaimed by the owner and their mother's lover, they decide to torch the house. The Alistair Jones music score includes aboriginal chanting. ~ Bhob Stewart, Rovi
