Rabbit-Proof Fence

Not an easy movie to watch. Which is why you should watch it. This movie shows just one story of three aboriginal girls that were forcibly removed from their mothers and assimilated into white culture, but the girls decided it wasn’t for them and so walked 1200 miles home. An extremely moving and powerful story, made all the worse because it is true. If you want to truly know what the phrase “Stolen Generation” means watch this film. And if all that isn’t enough, it is photographically beautiful. Watch it once, for once is draining enough for any person. Makes one embarrassed to be Australian. Embarrassed to live in a country where the government doesn’t even have the balls to say “sorry”.
