Ill add that to my list of movies to watch this summer. I assume it is available for DVD rental?
I note that they have a Donate link on their website. Donate $100 and see your name in the credits. Donate $10K or more and you could get a walk-on roll on their next movie or just donate $50 so you can feel good about it.
Its a pity that the Australian film industry is not doing so well. I dont think anything has put Oz on the map as some of the movies we put out in the 80s and 90s - Croc Dundee, Young Einstein, Mad Max. Most of our best actors and directors have had to move offshore to get into the top billing movies. Were still capable of producing great stuff such as Lantana but just dont have the big budget.
"Australia" did have the budget and plenty of promotion. I havent seen it but it has the sense of something that has been done before (nothing new)
