    Great Australian feature film of 80s era. Both moving and poignant performances from Judy Davis and Claudia Karvan.

    A hidden gem. Fine acting and a good story line. 4/5

    It seems odd for a movie in Australia to not have loads of sunshine and instead be very overcast. Initially I presumed it was in New Zealand.

    Another example of great Australian cinema.
