Don't waste your time
7 November 2018 | by tonystelliSee all my reviews

It's pretty obvious that the writer (maybe director too) sees race relations in Australia through the lens of corporate, main-stream news organisations.

Sadly, there will be many who live in that same deluded, white man's bubble who'll think that this movie is so "powerful."

If the racial stereotypes weren't bad enough, enter Bryan Brown who plays your typical, white, cliche hero to save the day.
