I want to cry, this was so beautiful. The ending was shattering, the composition was storming and the characters were all so interesting to follow. It's worth the time it asks of you, I promise

Absolutely heart breaking, phenomenally beautiful film. A powerfully told, unbearable story of Australian history, racism, violence and stolen land. 10 stars.
