      Richard Kuipers Variety This adaptation of Elliot Perlman's 1998 novel shifts uneasily at times around weighty themes, but its essential humanism still strikes chords. Sep 8, 2006 Full Review Ruthe Stein San Francisco Chronicle Three Dollars, a depressing muddle of a film from Australia, isn't likely to cause a stampede to purchase the award-winning novel on which it is based. Rated: 1/4 Sep 8, 2006 Full Review Film Threat Rated: 2/5 Sep 26, 2006 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member One Of My Favourite Films As It Highlights How Sudden & Abruptly Life Can Take A Turn For The Worse By No Fault Of Your Own Other Than Happenstance. It Is A Perspective Rarely Visited In Films & That Is Why This Is Such A Gem. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/21/23 Full Review Audience Member i quite enjoyed this movie. it had a nice message. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Much as I like David Wenham, I found this flick pretty boring. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member A charming film with a heavy story about a man trying to do good in a not so good time. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Audience Member Started off okay, but got too bleak too quickly. I mean, for goodness sake, why didn't he just go and claim social security since both he and his wife were unemployed?! The gang beatings bit was pretty grim too. Unfortunately it was not unbelievable as there are plenty of people like that here, (sadly), but it was a little in your face for the type of movie that this was aiming to be. I also thought the Amanda storyline was going to go somewhere, but that just fizzled. By all means not a bad movie, but it just couldn't seem to decide what it was going for. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member good aussie film, quite mysterious at times, moves along very much like life. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
