| Moving informative documentary
A moving informative documentary about the last great Prime Minister Australia has had.

Particular unique was how instead of focusing on the action in Canberra it was all about Chifleys strong unbroken links to his local community and how this shaped his world view and his essential humanity and empathy with ordinary people that he never lost.

Use of newsreel footage that I had never seen before and moving tributes from people who had meet him - not as a Prime Minister but as a local was brilliant.

Highly recommended. Well directed to a climax that leads the audience to tears - that is a high achievement for a film about a politician!
