Thornton draws on his experience of growing up in central Australia for this directorial debut about two teenagers who form an unlikely relationship. Their Aboriginal community is captured without judgement, including the violence, drug abuse and the antagonistic relationship with their white neighbours, and it is this impartial documentation that makes this an intelligent and unsentimental work. Without doubt a very worthy and moving cinematic experience.
