In case you hadn't noticed


I'm an incorrigible fan of Australian movies. "The Castle", "Wake in Fright", "Sunday Too Far Away", "The Shiralee", "Red Dog", "Age of Consent", "Storm Boy", "Travelling North", "Breaker Morant", "Rabbit-Proof Fence" - and the list goes on and on.

I've just added two more to my collection: "The Light between Oceans", a film about tired people, reeling from the war, the loss of loved ones, wanting to have a family and escaping to a peaceful corner of the world to live a simple life; and "A Month of Sundays", the story of a middle-aged, depressed real estate salesman in Adelaide made into a film with brain and heart.
