Should be required viewing for all Australians...
23 June 2017 | by See all my reviews

...apart from the fact it was brilliantly entertaining (if I wasn't laughing I was crying), it's an extremely timely film that can't help but start a different social conversation / a much needed fresh dialogue - thank you to all those who must of worked so hard to get it to the screen.

This will be an Aussie classic - get in and be one of the first to see it!
