FRI­DAY AUS­TRALIAN RULES

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - WEEK IN MOVIES -

9.30PM, NITV ★★★★

When Prospect Bay’s ju­nior football team makes the grand fi­nal for the first time in 38 years, its racially in­te­grated line-up be­comes a light­ning rod for ten­sions that have rum­bled for years. Within this pres­sure­cooker at­mos­phere, a close friend­ship be­tween the team’s Abo­rig­i­nal star, Dumby (Luke Car­roll), and white fringe player Gary “Blacky’’ Black (Nathan Phillips), is barely tol­er­ated. Aus­tralian Rules is a gutsy, grip­ping film.
