Spoiler Alert: I usually make sure my reviews don't contain spoilers, but it isn't possible to review this film accurately without spoiling the plot. This is pretty well acted, but I'll tell you what...there's no good way to make a movie about an emotionally abusive parent, incest, and four deaths within a family of 6 people. I would not recommend this for the overwhelming fact that the movie as a whole will not make anybody feel good watching it. The topic is just way too depressing. I can't understand why anyone would make a film like this, unless it was a documentary.

In addition to the gritty depiction of tortured family relationships, this is a brutally honest portrayal of isolationist life in the Australian Outback. At once powerful, tough and tender. Subtitles.

An entralling film but not for the faint-hearted. Ben Mendelsohn is fabulous as a son returning to a troubled family farm long after events drove him away. Without wishing to write a spoiler there is a rather unusual role reversal involved. Great acting combined with some beautiful scenery.
