Customer Reviews

A movie that can be watched many many times.
Inger Andersen
I stopped this movie about a quarter of the way in, so I can't give a really good opinion of it.
Suzanne Schumacher
The actors are good and all well selected for their parts.

This film (theatrical release 1988, video release date April 1999) will prove to be a favorite of Jeff Fahey fans, and general movie-goers alike. It was filmed in Australia, and is visually stunning. Story revolves around a teenage girl's life and the people and situations she encounters in turn of the century Australia. Her character, Alice May Richards (played by Tushka Bergen) grows up on a horse ranch; has to deal with the farm going bankrupt, her father's death, getting shipped off to the city away from the life and horses she loves. Meanwhile she meets Ben Creed (Jeff Fahey) a dashing, hardworking broker, who falls for her, but her attentions are focused on a macho and less interesting horseman on her ranch...I won't spoil it for you, but this movie is highly interesting for character development and the twists and turns of the plot. This was probably a huge hit in Australia...I have purchased this video a total of seven times for gifts since I originally viewed it in June of 1999. Excellent choice for young girls who are horse lovers...and a very excellent effort by Jeff Fahey as well. Again, the visual aspects of the beautiful countryside, the horses, characters costumed perfectly in turn of the century clothing, and great plot and all round acting makes this film a real winner! Enjoy! (Note: no nudity, or situations unsuitable for a G audience!) A real GEM!

The story takes place in Australia and it revolves around a rich rancher who trades horses but is now in financial debt. Add in a neghbouring bad rich rancher who wants to take over his settlement and you've got a story. Long story short is that the good rancher dies and his daughter played by Tushka Bergen is left with his property/problem. In comes Ben Creed played by Jeff Fahey to help out Alice and the battle for the ranch begins.

The movie itself is pretty good but I was disspointed with this DVD release. The movie is presented in Fullscreen format but near the end it switches to Widescreen for the last few minutes. What the hell? Also, the sound dissapeares for a brief second at one point. The picture quality is acceptable so other than those two annoyances its a solid DVD, the price is good too.

Dear reader, allow me to say that I am a huge fan of the western genre, and this film seemed attracting to me (mainly by the awesome cover art.) I was at my best friend's house when we saw this and as the film progressed I was really impressed by the films character development, the acting performances, the politics of the day and the love triangle was so well told that it kept my best friend's attention and my mine. Now the film does is slow passed and might bore some people, but that all aside it is a fun film to watch. But again if your looking for a shoot em up don't bother. To conclude I will say this, I do recommend it. It is well done for a TV show that aired in the 80s. It's really too bad that today we do not have any western TV shows.

The cinematography is outstanding -- especially any of the scenes featuring the roundup of the wild horses near the sea and in the mountains. The actors are good and all well selected for their parts. (Jeff Fahey fans will especially enjoy this movie.) The background music is beautiful and hauntingly memorable. I would like to see more emphasis on Australian culture. There were no aboriginees or wild animals specific to this part of the world, which would probably be included if the film was made today. However, this doesn't distract from a good story that leaves the viewer with a warm feeling. I imagine the critic reviews when it was originally released in Australia must have been very favorable, and wish there were special features about the making of the movie. Fun movie to watch more than once.

Another one of my favorite movies. It takes place in Australia. A young woman is sent to finishing school where she meets up with a cow hand and is also re-introduced to a man who came to do business with her father. While she is at finishing school her father dies and she goes home. Soon she discovers that her father was over his head in debt. She sets out to lesson the debt. Unbeknownst to her, this business man obtains the deed to Minniemarra, her home, for her so her crooked neighbor can't have it and he loses it due to an act of vengeance which ruins his very lucrative business. The business man, the girl, and the cowhand all come together to regain her land. Both the cowhand and the business man are in love with her. She does choose one in the end. Its a western romance and I enjoy watching it. Also has some beautiful horses in it.

A young Jeff Fahey is in the movie that is so well reviewed below. Kind of a sweet little movie, till our virginal heroine suddenly falls into bed after clearly establishing that she is not that kind of girl.

I was surprised at the authenticity of costumes, etc. Something about horses makes any movie more majestic.

It was not as strong as I would have liked. The movie business is a competitive one, and it seems a waste to put all that money and energy into something that doesn't grab you in some way and keep you watching.

It's gotta be more than just the blue eyes.
