What a shockingly stunning film! It's still going around and around in my head and it's a struggle to know what to write.
It's always a shock to discover that films like these are based on real events, I like to think that people are better than that. But it's a well written, superbly acted, thrilling ride that doesn't sugar coat any of the issues. Emma Lung, Veronica Sywak, Saskia Burmeister and Sun Park give emotional, brave performances. Not for the faint-hearted, but so compelling and important. Just don't hold your breath for a happy ending.
Full credit to Dee McLachlan for a remarkably real and moving film experience.
