      Audience Member The premise here is very familiar: when siblings reunite for a family funeral, skeletons come out of the closet and must be dealt with. This movie is still utterly compelling thanks to a brilliant screenplay and soundtrack, superb acting and great direction by Rachel Perkins. Deborah Mailman is mesmerizing as Nona. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
