  • A sobering but emotional reminder of unresolved history.

  • It's an unashamedly polemical film. Grant himself is a pervasive presence on screen, eloquently summarising the state of the nation's moral health and backing up Goodes with the worst of his own experiences as a young Indigenous man.

  • Emotive, inspiring and argumentative, driven by a clear desire for justice and equality.

    Aug 2, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • To put it in more emotional terms, if The Final Quarter left you seething at how appalling this country sometimes is, The Australian Dream might have you feeling cautiously optimistic about how good it can be -- if it has the will to try.

  • What makes Goodes such an inspirational hero is the fact that he never matches hate for hate. He's teaching tolerance.

  • My wish is that every Australian see this film.
