Yep, that is where I am but I am referring to the movie. I was a little doubtful because of its length, but the time passed quickly enough. The Classic in Elsternwick is always a nice place to see a movie. Noted that it now seems to be owned by Readings, of bookshop fame. Must investigate this further.
Yes, there are heaps of things you could pick it up on, but it was a good story well presented. Even Nicole's acting I thought was ok. The shining star was the young Aboriginal boy, Brandon Walters, and of course you would guess that it did not care for Hugh Jackman taking his shirt off. Not usually my type, but he looked great. David Wenham of Seachange fame was also an excellent baddie.
It was also somewhat less than the three hours that I thought it ran for.
It is not an historical narrative, just a tale told well and I recommend it.
