You have to watch this film. I was totally gripped by it's intensity. The characters convince.

This is Australian film at its best.

I loved the shot of Ellie in front of the mural of the Brittish invasion of Australia. I was pleased Corrie was reading an Australian classic and the line about films not being as good as books. I've read a number of reviews since seeing the film and like my classrooms there is debate about the story. Here are a few:

I loved this film. It touched me in many ways. It is a great story that reveals lots of human themes such as friendship, judgement, values, commitment and love. It gives insight into homelessness and mental health. I watched it last night and I want to see it again. The music was precious as were the characters. All of them. This film is good.

Quentin Tarantino's 'Inglourious Basterds' was enjoyable. When I purchased it the salesperson told me it wasn't very good. I like Tarantino a lot though. Some of his films are among my favourites. People I trust had enjoyed it:-)

It had that great mix of funny, shocking, surprising, amusing, bizarre and lots of action and random characters.
I don't enjoy heavy metal music. I find it too angry and agressive and whilst I can appreciate lyrics and performances, it's not often I would feel like listening to it.
This was one of the scenes I found quite facinating...
I really enjoyed this documentary and I believe I will appreciate Metallica more in future from getting to know a little more about them.
