Why I thought this movie very good with lot to offer mature viewers
on September 10, 2017
This is a violent, often brutal, realistic movie showing the ugly usually undiscussed truth of what happened sometimes in Australian frontier
(could've been US west too)
Using 3 brothers to give a specific plot line, show family relationships? Even if one loves them, not always pretty, cut & dry, are they?
Brothers were street orphans in those backward days,
the moviie's pace is steady with some action scenes as needed to tell story,
not to fill film time with meaningless violence...
only that which furthers plot or adds realism, character development IMHO
main character Guy Pearce as he views things and realizes, conscience grows
Great story, sad and horrible story too
