    I thought this movie was worthwhile on several fronts; it made an insightful commentary on several aspects of modern society and its complicated relationships and problems, so much less common 40 years ago. It also demonstrated some very real human frailties and in the course of the story line showed how much adults and children alike have changed in that time. The scene in which a hoard of teenagers invade the house for a party and then ******** is all too true. All of the characters were convincing, the plot believable and the visuals of the movie\'s setting in rural and coastal South Australia truly evocative. I felt absorbed and involved to the last scene and came away satisfied, knowing the movie was one I would remember.

    This film is brilliant! A moving and touching display of life, love, sadness, and joy. This was one of the most heartwarming films I've seen in awhile. Even if you're not into these types of films, I'd say, go for it and watch it.

    Great movie! Dealing with the two boys and trying to live a life must have been a great challenge for him. Clive Own is a very insightful actor and truly brings out the best in this role. The young boys played their parts with a real sense of being actual kids. Superb acting by everyone. Would go to see it again.
