The truth of the subject
As an Australian who has lived in communities similar to the one depicted in this TV series, I can assure viewers it is *not* over-stated or exaggerated in any way - and in some communities even now, similar problems are occurring.
A young Cate Blanchett is absolutely remarkable, and Ernie Dingo performs marvelously in one of his few dramatic roles at the time. The soundtrack is also excellent.
I strongly recommend that any person with an interest in indigenous life vs white life in rural centres of Australia watch this series ... it may open eyes for some.
