Critic Reviews for Wide Open Sky
This Aussie docu about an outback children's choir sings a winning tune.
It's the sight of kids having their horizons expanded that uplifts the most.
Beautiful documentary from Sydney filmmaker Lisa Nicol that follows choir director Michelle Leonard as she auditions, assembles, then rehearses a children's choir drawn from Outback New South Wales.
There's not quite enough material to stretch this out to a full 90 minutes but Wide Open Sky is still a warm-hearted documentary that highlights the importance of artistic pursuits.
There may be little that's remarkable about the documentary's construction, but there's no escaping the infectious spirit of its subjects, the important work of their teacher, and their shared love of music.
Punctuated by moments of unadorned performance, the documentary focuses on individual personalities and not socioeconomic factors, but it makes it clear that there are numerous children whose creative instincts just need a little nurturing.
