      Audience Member The film doesn't quite hold up as it did 30 years ago due to the pieces of filler somewhat found in the movie. However, in the Land Down Under, it was certainly a big film at the time. We of the Never Never doesn't quite have stars that are the most engaging, but they all put in their money's worth, along with a down-to-earth plot to boot. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Audience Member I just watched the DVD. Refreshing to see a really great movie with no special effects. A really good watch and a very believable story. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Audience Member The beautiful soundtrack of oboe & bassoon really gets in deep. I guess I'll have to read the book now. Great acting. Pleasantly surprised. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Audience Member Very enjoyable film about the beaty and hardship of outback Australia and one woman's true story of challenging the land and the people who lived there. The book delved more into the characters but I though the film captured most very well and conveyed the isolation she felt and the toughness of the environment and expectations she faced. Oh yeah- and I admit it - I cried a little at the end!! Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/15/23 Full Review Audience Member A good dramatisation of the novel. It shows the struggle of people to fit into difficult environments and highlightd the advertsities faced in isolated communites. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member Sweet, touching, inspiring, the true story of Jeannie (Aeneas) Gunn. A period drama set in the outback where a "frail" woman realizes her inner strength to overcome adversity. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Read all reviews
