"Triumph of human spirit"
4 stars"

This was an amazing movie – very simple with lots of beautiful cinematography. Sad story but it's an awesome triumph of human spirit.

"History that we need to know about"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

We loved this portrayal of a often dismissed piece of history of a people who were treated apallingly. Hindsight is wonderful but the mere fact that one man thought he had all the answers for the lost aboriginal children by taking them away from their mothers was nothing short of typical victorian arrogance.


Rabbit Proof Fence

It's the 1930's in outback Australia. Three young Aboriginal girls – sisters Molly (Everlyn Sampi) and Daisy (Tianna Sansbury) and their cousin Gracie (Laura Monagham) are snatched from their mothers' arms in Jigalong, Western Australia and sent to a remote settlement at Moore River. 1500 miles away from home, distanced from their mothers and forced to adapt to a strange new world, the girls attempt the impossible and embark on a daring escape.

What ensues is an epic journy across an unforgiving landscape that will test the girls' very will to survive. Their only resources – tenacity, determination, ingenuity and each other. Their one hope – find the rabbit-proof fence that might just guide them home.

Critic Reviews:

  • " Rabbit-Proof Fence is a solid effort. " – Alyx Vesey
  • " [Director Phillip] Noyce shows their awful, eventually uplifting journey without flinching, and the arid Australian wilderness is a co-star of the film. " – Michael Booth
  • " Entering that austere pantheon of Australian outback classics like Walkabout and Picnic at Hanging Rock, Noyce's film is a profound wonder. " – Sara Michelle Fetters
