September Reviews

  • Mar 14, 2010

    A sweet film about the power of friendship in a changing world. September has been one of my favourite films since it's release and features an impressive cast including; Mia Wasikowska, Xavier Samuel, Clarence John Ryan and the always superb Sibylla Budd. Director Peter Carstairs has handled the delicate story with utter brilliance, so much so that I never tire of watching it. The soundtrack and awkwardness of the three teen leads are all highlights as is the flawless dialogue.

    I think this film will just be known for being one of Mia Wasikowska's first films.

    This is the type of Australian film I really adore. Unfortunately most people go this film the time of day. But if you actually sit down with some time to spare and give this film 30 seconds...you will become engaged. Its a story about Australian life the relationships of people during the time and also the relationship comparision between a pair of father and sons one white and one aboriginal. If you like films you should see this one.

    Don't expect heroism or a nail biting climax - this film simply shows life as it was and relationships as they still are. A lovely piece of Australian film that doesn't need to prove anything.

    A really beautiful Australian movie about the friendship between two boys in the 1960's, one white and one aboriginal. Really beautifully shot. Not a lot of dialogue, but thats part of what makes this movie great.

    Great film about a sad, no so long ago time in Australia. Handles the topic well without really demonising anyone. Pace might not suit everyone, but the beautiful sweeping scenes really do it justice.

    A very understated little Australian film about two young boys, one black, one white, and the realities of their friendship back in 1968 in WA. Worth seeing, bit of a sleeper.
