Geelong Advertiser - TV Guide - - MOVIES -

It’s not ev­ery­day you come across an Aussie movie that boasts beau­ti­ful scenery, stellar per­for­mances – and a lot of them are from non- ac­tors – and a fan­tas­tic sound­track to boot. And to top it off, there’s a happy end­ing to leave you with a smile on your face. Set in the stun­ning Out­back Kim­ber­ley land­scape and mov­ing be­tween three gen­er­a­tions of a fam­ily, we fol­low TJ ( Dean Da­ley- Jones) as he goes on a 2000km jour­ney to the iso­lated town of Five Rivers to find the son he has never laid eyes on, teenager Bul­let ( Lu­cas Yeeda, above). Cre­ated with the help of lo­cal Abo­rig­i­nal com­mu­ni­ties, in­clud­ing band the Pi­gram Brothers, it’s a spe­cial trip.
