It was never shown in the movie how Caroline got Rachel's body to the Kilmore farm. Caroline kept Rachel's body in her apartment for two days. She then wrapped Rachel's body in two rugs and took her, by taxi, to her father's Kilmore farm. Caroline told the taxi driver that she was moving a statue. She then buried Rachel's body in a shallow grave. See more »

Disturbing but excellent Aussie drama
12 February 2012 | by (Birmingham, England) – See all my reviews

I have always been a fan of Guy Pearce (who will always be remembered as Mike from Neighbours in the UK)who is an actor that always seems to appear in decent films. On that basis I decided to watch this small Australian film.

The film covers a real life case of a 15 year old girl who inexplicably goes missing from home. We see the reaction of her parents the excellent Pearce and Miranda Otto as they struggle to get the police to take the disappearance seriously. The film then concentrates on of the suspects a former babysitter played with chilling menace by Ruth Bradley and her father played by the dependable Sam Neill. The final part and weakest part of the film follows the missing girl.

The subject matter doesn't really make for happy viewing and for that i cannot bring myself to give it a higher mark, yet it is an excellently made film and one of the best of it's type I have seen. It certainly deserves a wider audience.

Be warned that one of the scenes in particular is extremely disturbing and may upset a lot of viewers.
