      Jake Wilson The Age (Australia) Whimsical Australian fable with the soul of a tourist brochure. Rated: 2/5 Oct 24, 2008 Full Review Sydney Morning Herald The MacRaes direct with a sure enough hand for The View From Greenhaven to feel like an accomplished debut. Rated: 3/5 Oct 17, 2008 Full Review Margaret Pomeranz At the Movies (Australia) Perhaps the characters are a bit underwritten, but this is a feel good film that is not wildly ambitious. Rated: 3/5 Nov 7, 2008 Full Review Jason Di Rosso MovieTime, ABC Radio National Wendy Hughes and Chris Haywood are good in the lead roles but the supporting characters -- an assortment of bubbly tourists and small-town eccentrics -- just aren't original or interesting enough. Oct 17, 2008 Full Review FILMINK (Australia) It's not designed to leave audiences rolling in the aisles, but it will put a smile on your face and make its way into your heart. Oct 17, 2008 Full Review Andrew L. Urban Urban Cinefile The gentle toughness of the subject is perhaps deceptive, as the Macrae brothers embark on a story about a man who has shut down three decades ago and has just about used up all the leeway his family is prepared to give him.

      Audience Member [font=Calibri][size=3]I wasn't sure what to expect from “The View from Greenhaven”. It is the first feature length movie from the MacRae brothers. The story revolves around the lives of a aging couple [/size][/font][color=black][font='Arial','sans-serif']Dashiell (Chris Haywood), and his long-suffering wife, Dorothy (Wendy Hughes). Dashiell is a grumpy old man, deeply affected by a tragedy some 32 years ago. With their marriage on the rocks, their daughter buys them tickets on a mystery train tour. What transpires is unexpected, and leads us on a journey as Dorothy discovers the life she could have, and Dashiell, the life he has taken for granted. The film has the perfect balance of humor and discovery. [/font][/color] [color=black][font='Arial','sans-serif'] [/font][/color][color=black][font='Arial','sans-serif']Chris Haywood and Wendy Hughes contribute stunning performances. After seeing the film I learned that Chris and Wendy were once married. Perhaps a little irony with the film characters, but their interaction on-screen is authentic and magic.[/font][/color] [color=black][font='Arial','sans-serif'] [/font][/color][color=black][font='Arial','sans-serif']The MacRae brothers have written a wonderful script and delivered it perfectly to the big screen. The Australian film industry has been lean on quality films in recent years. The view from Greenhaven will not disappoint.[/font][/color] Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
